100+ Reading Challenge

Another challenge: The 100+ Reading Challenge, hosted by J. Kaye is again, rather self explanatory - try and reading 100 books or more in 2010. Since it's something I'm going to try and do anyway, (for my own small and informal reading challenge over at Elftown - poor name I know, but a great community for fantasy & sci-fi lovers) I thought I'd sign up. Extra motivation and all that jazz. I'm trying to manage it this year, too - so far I've read 75 books. It'll be tight, but I'm hoping I can plough through quite a few after term ends.
