100+ Reading Challenge

100+ChallengeButtonSo I chose this one as my first challenge to participate in... J. Kaye's blog hosts many challenges and I thought this was one I could actually complete, since it falls across a wide range of genres. If you'd like to give it a try, the post about the challenge is here. Assuming I can already include titles I've read this year before posting this blog, I'm already off to a pretty good start, but I'll need to pick up the pace a little bit. I've got about 20 books in my TBR pile so hopefully I'll make a good dent in this list in the next few weeks!
