Read Your Own Books Challenge

I've decided to sign up for yet another book challenge. This one is the Read Your Own Books Challenge. I figure since one of my 2010 goals is to get through my TBR pile, this is perfect. Here are the rules:
  • Pick a number of books you’d like to read in one year
  • Choose those books from your OWN collection
  • Read them between January 1, 2010 and December 31, 2010
And, that’s it!
Some other guidelines for this challenge:
  • Re-Reads are NOT allowed (the challenge is to get more of your own books read that have been sitting there waiting!)
  • Audiobooks & e-books ARE allowed
  • You do NOT need a blog to participate — you can leave comments on this post with your progress
I'm committing to reading 10 books for this challenge. Here's my list:
  1. Same Kind of Different as Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore REVIEW
  2. The Post-War Dream by Mitch Cullin REVIEW to come
  3. The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama
  4. The Long Wait for Tomorrow by Joaquin Dorfman REVIEW
  5. Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin
  6. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See REVIEW
  7. The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls REVIEW
  8. The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan REVIEW
  9. Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult
  10. A Million Little Pieces by James Frey

    1. I need to sign up for this challenge, if nothing else than to stop myself from buying more books and reading the ones I already have!

      I hope you love Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls -- it's one of my favorites!
