Beth Fish Reads has decided to host this challenge for 2011. I've had a lot of fun participating in this challenge for the last couple of years, although I'm still not quite done with the 2010 challenge. I know I'm cutting it close but I think I will be able to do it!

I really appreciate that this is a pretty flexible challenge in that you do not need to make a list ahead of time and you can use various modes of reading, such as e-books, audiobooks, or even the real thing! I will update this post as I read books for this challenge. So what are you waiting for? Head on over and sign up now here to join us for 2011.
