    So we're reading 100 books this year. Or fifty, if you're in for the half-marathon. Fiction, non-fiction, adult and YA all count.


    1. every five books you read, pop back in here and let us know.

    2. short YA, novellas, and even quality middle grade books count. No picture books, though. Graphic novels count. Comic books don't.

    3. let us all know if you've read something incredibly astonishing and you're just bursting with it.

    4. rereading books from other years is okay -- but the same book shouldn't count twice this year.

    5. don't force yourself to finish a book you aren't enjoying. Move on!

    I am going to read 100 books in 2009. And document them. I just decided this today. So far:

    The Luxe
    Teach Me
    The Adoration of Jenna Fox
    Wastelands: Stories of the Apocalypse (adult)
    The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks
    Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
    Lottery (adult)

    So far, I'm on track for a book every 3.65 days. I figure if I allow myself 3 or 4 YA books for every adult book, I should reach my goal. Of course I read a ton of books anyway, but I never document them. The library is my friend.

    What have you read this year so far?
    Anybody want to match me?
