Reading Challenge

I have challenged myself to read 100 books this year and I m calling this challenge 100 Books Challenge for 2011.

I don’t really like rules but well, oh well my friend told me that every challenge even if it’s for your self needs to have rules (such a party pooper eh?). So, anyways here are the rules –

  • You should read 100 books in year 2011 which spans from January 1st to December 31st.
  • You can read books of any genre, fiction, non-fiction, poetry absolutely any book that’s recognized.
  • You can even re-read the books (I made this one because I want to re-read the whole Harry Potter series).

It’s that simple!

Anyways me being me I have already made a list of books I wanna read in 2011 (as I have been wanting to read a few for ages now) and here is the list –
