A Reading Challenge for the New Year

Growing up I was a lot like Jessie is now. I would go to the library each week, check out a stack of books, read every single one of them, and return them the next week to start all over again. Granted, I did have a lot more free time on my hands back then and a lot fewer responsibilities, but still I would like to increase my reading beyond what I am prereading for the kids at school. Enter the 52 books in 52 weeks challenge. This challenge began last year on the Well Trained Mind Forums, but at the time I didn't feel like I had the time to participate. The rules are simple.

  1. The challenge will run from January 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010.
  2. Participants may join at any time.
  3. All forms of books are acceptable including e-books, audio books, etc.
  4. Re-reads are acceptable as long as they are read after January 1, 2010.
  5. Books may overlap other challenges.
  6. Create an entry post linking to this blog.
  7. Come back and sign up with Mr. Linky in the "I'm participating post" below this post.
  8. You don't have a blog to participate, I can set you up as a reviewer.
  9. I'll be adding a post with Mr. Linky for participants to post book reviews.
I may not get to 52 unless I count some school related books, but it will certainly be fun to try.
