Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.

I swore I wasn’t going to do this.  I am still undecided about challenges, as I do not like feeling pressure to read something other than what I want to read.  I have tried really hard to only participate in challenges that do not require me to deviate from my wish list or TBR pile.  Then I started looking at the challenges for 2010 and found myself sucked into the fun.  Here’s what caught my eye:

Thriller and Suspense Reading Challenge

I have no idea what I am going to read yet, but I know I will finish at least twelve thrillers in the next twelve months.  At least, that is what I am telling myself right now.

The Outlander Reading Challenge Button
Three people in a matter of five hours mentioned that this series was at the top of the favorite book list, and I became intrigued.  I have Outlander to read as part of a 2009 challenge, and since I am a sucker for a series, the natural step will see me finishing the series.  I am really looking forward to starting this one, based solely on the recommendation of my friends!
The 100+ Reading Challenge Button 
This is the mother of all challenges.  I just want to see if I can read 100 books in one year.  I always thought that I did, but considering I never counted the number of books read before, I consider 2009 as a benchmark year and 2010 is the year that I will break this number.  There is no way I am going to predict what books I will read, but trust me that everything I read will go towards this challenge.  
 The Flashback Reading Challenge Button
I am the queen of re-reading books!  The only books I keep are those I plan on re-reading at some point in time.  There are so many on this list that I am going to sign up for the Literati level, committing to six books this year.  If you can’t tell, I take a very lax approach to challenges and am only committing to a certain number while not committing to any particular books right now.  I am going to let my fancy do the choosing for me!
I think this is enough for now, don’t you?  I’m sure that there are other challenges that will pique my interest as the year unfolds.  I look forward to seeing if I can complete them all!
Which ones caught your eye?  Any recommendations that would fit into any of my 2010 challenges?
