Now I've done it!
I've gone and signed up to be part of Book Chick City's "100 Books in a Year" reading challenge (many thanks to A.L. Rutter of Floor to Ceiling Books for the heads-up on this).
I average close to 100 books in a normal year without even trying, but now that I'm actually going to be trying and keeping track... well, I hope Uncle Murphy gives me a pass.
I don't suppose I get to count finishing books that I've started in 2010 toward that goal, though, do I?
Just for fun: here's my current list. I read a lot of books at the same time!
THE BIG SHORT - Michael Lewis*
INHERENT VICE - Thomas Pynchon
BONESHAKER - Cherie M. Priest
COMMON AS AIR: REVOLUTION, ART AND OWNERSHIP - Lewis Hyde
LAVINIA - Ursula K. LeGuin
Plus I keep dipping into a few short story collections. Sigh!
After that, well, watch me go!
*UPDATE: I finished THE BIG SHORT at 11:04 am on New Year's Eve Day. My mind is still boggling from this one and I'm contemplating a blog post on it, but I want to see how far along I can get on the other incompletes.
