I didn't make it.... better luck next year. 


  1. Christine - you've gone challenge crazy! LOL I didn't read all the rules but the challenges over lap right? So you can use one book for more than one challenge? Otherwise, you better be able to read while you run. :)

    I wasn't planning on doing challenges this year - wanted to concentrate on the tbr pile but most of the challenges fit with that plan. 100+ Challenge I could do - there's over 500 people signed up!

    Off to check out more challenges!

  2. I know!!!! In one of my other challenge posts, Mel commented and said I was brave. I laughed and thought, 'crazy' and 'over ambitious' is more accurate.

    But yes, books can definitely overlap more than one challenge. For instance, the next book I'm reading is Beautiful Creatures and is a YA that I borrowed from the library. So it goes on this 100+ challenge, the YA challenge AND the support your library challenge.

    Otherwise, you better be able to read while you run. :)

    LOL! Great idea because audiobooks are acceptable for quite a few of J.Kaye's challenges!! Thanks for the suggestion! ;p

  3. This sounds like a great challenge, I'm totally up for this. Thanks for the info.

  4. Good luck Christine!

    I laughed and thought, 'crazy' and 'over ambitious' is more accurate.

    Nope. I'm with Mel - brave :)

  5. Welcome to the 100+ Reading Challenge of 2010. I’m so excited to get this new year underway. I think there are going to be lots of great books published this year.

    Have fun!

  6. Hey Erika, No problem. I'm glad you're joining. Good luck, too!

    orannia, another vote of confidence. Thanks!

    J. Kaye, thanks for the welcome. I'm optimistic about reaching 100+ books this year. :)

  7. You'll do it Christine! This is your year.

    I joined more Challenges than I planned to, lol! Let's see how that goes for me. ;P

  8. Wow, that is a lot of books! I don't think I could do it!

  9. Wow, what a goal! Good for you.

  10. Thanks, Hilcia. I wouldn't even consider doing this many reading challenges if I couldn't "double dip" books in more than one challenge. It's still going to be a stretch for me to complete all of them, though.

    Tracy, Thanks for stopping by! Of course you don't have time to read 100+ books... you're spending all of your time mixing, pouring, baking, creating, photographing, and blogging all of those amazing recipes that you do! :D

    SmallTownRunner, Thanks for stopping by! If you want to check out my running posts, you can search my blog by topic or go to this link: . Happy Trails! :)

  11. Oops! That link got cut off. I should be:

  12. Good luck Christine :D

    It's a lot of challenges, but they all sound so fun :) And since they overlap and some only needs you to list them, it's all good :D

  13. Hey, C! Decided to join in on this one too! I figure if I actually get through my TBR pile & start in on the In Death challenge soon...I'll "easily" make it to 100 books this year! lol
