2011 100+ Reading Challenge

I am very excited to see that My Overstuffed Bookshelf has decided to host this challenge for 2011!  Let me be honest with you right now.  I don't expect to read 100 books during 2011, but I am joining this challenge for 2011, just like I did for 2010 so I can have a complete list of the books that I read during the year.  I've read 50 books in 2010 and I'm going to see if I can surpass that in 2011!

This is a very flexible challenge but you can read all the details and sign up for yourself here.  I will update this post as I read books for this challenge.
