2011 Reading Goals

Book Ardour Off The Shelf Reading Challenge
Making a Dint Level

Off The Shelf!

I have joined the above challenge but I have added a personal twist.

The Rules: I have chosen 30 books that I already own and plan to read all of them for this year. For every 5 books I finish reading, I may reward myself with buying one book. Below are the 30 books I have chosen, and I will read them in no particular order. I will try to post reviews after I have finished each book, and I will also try to update this page with my progress as much as I can.
