  2. Wow - nearly 10 novels a month for 2011? That would definitely be a challenge for me...we'll see. But, very best luck to you! Happy New Year!

  6. I wish I could, but I signed on to do a course with Alex Sokoloff. I do have a huge pile of books I'm determined to get through this year ... before I have to start marketing. Good luck to everyone who takes the challenge.

  7. Hi Mason, thanks. It's a big challenge and I've got stacks of books to read, so I'm hoping this challenge helps me get through the stacks a bit faster.

    Hi Donea. When you said 10 novels a month, I gulped. Yikes, what did I get myself into?

    Part of the rules are that they can be audio, re-reads, eBooks, YA, Manga (don't know what that is), Graphic novels, Young Reader, nonfiction - as long as the book has an ISBN or equivalent or can be purchased as such, the book counts.

    What doesn't count: individual short stories or individual books in the Bible.

    I figure that since I read a lot of MG and YA, some of the books I read will be a bit shorter, making it a bit easier to reach my goal by the end of the year.

  9. Hi Hilary, thanks for stopping by. I'm sure the books you use for your research would all be wonderful books to read. You always have such intersting blog posts.

  10. No way can I read that many books, but best of luck to you. That's quite an accomplishment. I'll just read my one a week and be happy. :)

    Happy Reading

  12. I just checked out your link. Yikes! I'll try to read 26 books, one every two weeks. That's realistic for me.

  13. Yay!!!! Best of luck! Last year I was able to read about 50 and I felt that was good considering it was my first year back at reading.

    I think in a few years time I'll be up to the 100+ challenge!!

  14. I'm not aiming for an exact number. But I'm hoping to finish reading 2 books a week. Some, though, will be rereads.

  17. I think this is an awesome challenge! I am going to count the books I read this year, but I don't think I'm going to officially join the challenge.

    Good luck with it!

  19. Susanne,

    I wish you luck in your challenge. 100+ books is a lot. Will you have time to write?

    I also have an overstuffed bookshelf, with many books left unread. I do plan to read more this year, but I'd be luck to fit in 1 written book a month, and 4 books on CD.

    Good luck,
    Cher

  20. Hi Cher, thanks for stopping by to check out my post. Yep, I'll have time to write. Since I write MG and YA, that is mostly what I read. I have a lot of young reader books which have been collected over the years. They are in the guidelines of the challenge, so I figured this was going to be my year to get them all read.

  21. Good luck on your challenge, Susanne! I keep a spreadsheet each year (yeah, I know...OCD) so I can keep it all together and organized by genre....

    Happy New Year!

  22. Looks like quite a challenge. Good luck!

  23. Hi, Sharon. A spreadsheet sounds like a really good idea. I'm not that organized, but am working towards getting there.

    Hi, Mayra. Thanks for stopping by to check out my blog post. I think the challenge will help me get through the stacks of books I keep meaning to read, but never quite get around to. I'm already on my 5th book, so we will see.
