In 2010 I set a goal to read 100 books.  I horribly, completely failed!

Therefore in 2011 I am trying again!  My goal is to 75 books during 2011 including all the major award winners (if I haven't already read them).

Here's my idea:
  • I will read 75 books over the next 365 days.
  • Picture books don't count in the challenge but I will continue reading those and blogging my thoughts!
  • Kids, novels, graphic novels, YA novels, adult novels and nonfiction books that are not picture books are fair game to count in the 75 count. 
  • At least three books must be Newbery Award winners, including this year's if I haven't already read it.
  • At least two books must be Printz Award winners or honors, including this year's winner if I haven't already read it. 
  • At least two books must be from another literary award category.
I may not blog about each title I read.  I will try...but sometimes I just get busy and don't get around to writing!
