Books Off the Shelf Challenge

One more challenge for 2010. This one I also found on Librarything. This one is to read books that you have on your shelf already, all those books you keep meaning to read and then don't. I have lots of them so I thought this was a good way to actually get myself to read them. For the purposes of this challenge I am only going to use books that I owned before December 1st 2009. You got to pick any number you wanted so I went with 25. Which works out nicely since between the 25 books for this challenge and the 50 for the library challenge it adds up to the 75 for the 75 book challenge. I wish I could say that had been my plan but it was just more of a coincidence. I'll be happy to reach my stated goal of 25 but I hope to read even more and will list all books read off my shelf until the end of the year and see how far I get.
