Reading Challenges 2010
I've been reading a lot of book blogs lately where people are involved in reading challenges. And it got me thinking about how I've always had my own personal reading challenges (for example, the BBC Big Read) but I've never really put much into them. Now that I have the accountability of this blog, I plan to attack a few reading challenges in 2010.
1. 100 Books
Easy enough, read 100 books in one year.
2. A-Z Book Challenge
Read 26 titles, each one starting with a different letter of the alphabet.
3. Read 20 Canadian books
So many great Canadian books and authors.
4. Read 3 Classics
I have an entire bookshelf of classics just waiting to be read. And yet, I never read them.
5. Read 5 titles from the BBC Big Read Top 200 List
In April 2003, the BBC wanted to find the nation's best-loved novel. In the end they combined the top 200 into the Big Read List. So far, I have read 17.
Halfway through the year, I'll check in and see where I am, then at the end of the year I will post a final tally.
