There are tons of reading challenges starting up for the new year. I've never taken part in one before, but I found the review-optional Off the Shelf Challenge and decided that this one is definitely for me!
Basically, this is a challenge to try to get your to-be-read pile under control by reading some of the books that you already have in your possession.
Here's what I will read in 2011 for this challenge:
1. Adios, Nirvana by Conrad Wesselhoeft
2. The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
3. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
4. Tell Me a Secret by Holly Cupala
5. Among the Ghosts by Amber Benson
6. Milo by Alan Silberberg
7. Beautiful by Amy Reed
8. Crash into Me by Albert Borris
9. Chasing Brooklyn by Lisa Schroeder
10. Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols
11. WTF by Peter Lerangis
12. Take Me There by Carolee Dean
13. Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers
14. Building Blocks by Cynthia Voigt
15. The Lover by Marguerite Duras (Weird. This has been on my shelf for over a decade. I just watched the movie recently.)
Since my list contains fifteen books, I am in the "Trying" level of the Challenge. Looking forward to it!
