Last year I participated in a 50 book challenge and I fell a little short of the mark, but only cuz I started about 3 months into the year (ahem, yeah right). Several fellow nerdfighters wanted to join me in my quest, so here we are!
Start a thread with your personal goal for 188.8.131.52, and then add on as you read throughout the year. This way we get to see what everyone else is reading & keep each other in check. Feel free to add me as a friend, or you might get a friends request from me--so we keep each other in line!
P.S. YES, there will be a 50 Book Challenge 184.108.40.206!!

I've just realized that everything I've read so far this year has been historical fiction. That's totally accidental but really, really funny. Right now I'm reading "Almost Alice" by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, and then we'll see what comes up next. looks like I'm making good progress though, right? Somebody bust me out of this historical fiction phase! haha. :-)
make that 5! I just finished Almost Alice by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. it's part of the Alice series i've been reading since I was like, eleven and even though I'm 18 and a half and in the series right now Alice is only about 16 or 17, I'm still stuck on these books for the fact that I want to know what happens to the kid, and PRN has written into these books probably every painfully embarrassing thing that could happen to a teenage girl...and it makes me feel less idiotic when i do stupid stuff because Alice has done it too. :-P
nice. I wanted to re-read Vampire Diaries before the new one came out and then I re-read the Nightworld series (same author), and then I re-read Girl at Sea, Just Listen (twice), This Lullaby, The Truth about Forever, Let it Snow, The Witch of Blackbird Pond, The Host, Old Magic-and now I'm re-reading some Animorphs and Goosebumps books. and I think I re-read Twilight somewhere in there...
I don't know...sometimes I go off on a re-reading tangent...lol.
Okay so far this year I've read:
1. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them By:Newt Scamander ( J.K. Rowling)
2. The Princess Diaries Vol 5: Princess in Pink By: Meg Cabot
3. Gossip Girl #2 : You Know You Love Me By: Cecily Von Ziegesar
4. Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl By: Harriet Ann Jacobs
5. New Moon By: Stephenie Meyer
6. Peeled By: Joan Bauer
7. Jinx By: Meg Cabot
8. An Abundance of Katherines By: John Green
9. Coraline By: Neil Gaiman
41 left :) I'm currently reading Uglies By: Scott Westerfeld and The Velveteen Principles for Women By: Toni Raiten-D'Antonio. I am counting rereads that I havent' read this year. Ex: I'm going to reread the HP series, but I wouldn't reread Jinx b/c it's already on the list and can't be counted.
Do Comic Books/ Magna/ Graphic Novels count?
