I do intend to use the books I read in more than one challenge, so that will help a bit.
Overall I'm aiming at reading somewhere near 140 books.
As always my "extra" to each challenge is that my books will be crime fiction.
I will count all the books I read, made-from-paper, e-books, and audio books in my total.
Looking for some Challenge Ideas?
Here are the challenges and my level of commitment.
|Canadian Book Challenge 2010-2011 |
I have to read 13 books by Canadian authors by 1 July 2011.
So far I've read 8, so I'm well on track.
|2011 Global Reading Challenge: |
I have committed myself to reading 21 titles, all crime fiction, 3 titles each from 7 "continents". I think my 7th continent will be historical crime fiction.
