100 Books in 2009 Reading Challenge

I'll be participating in J. Kaye's challenge to read 100 books in 2009. I don't know if I'll make it, but it's worth a shot! Here's the original post if you would like to join.

I'll keep a running list of the books I've read or plan to read through the year. There are always more books I want to read than I have time for, so if the list goes over 100 at some point (which it probably will), I'm not going to worry about whittling it down until closer to the end of the contest, in case I miraculously make it over the threshold. Bold titles are books I've started. Those I complete will be linked to my review. Wish me luck!

You have 25 already listed - Oh you totally rock! I need to spend more time organizing my lists, but I don't know if I'll have the time.

The only reason I have a list already is because I had a list already. There are always more books to read than I have time for so when I read a review of a book and decide I want to read it, I add it to a word document and just edit it out every once in a while. I always end up reading things that aren't on the list, but I also have a starting point when I hit the stacks :)
