Four-Month Reading Challenge

Okay, so I knew this reading challenge thing was going to suck me in. I've signed up for two more challenges. They both allow crossovers from other challenges, so I might be able to count some books for both challenges, but I'm not going to go out of my way to do that.
The first challenge is a four-month challenge running from Nov. 1, 2009 to Feb. 28, 2010.

Here's the challenge, and a few books I've plugged in that are already on my to-be-read list or things that came to me as I looked at the categories. I'm such a nerd. I can't believe I'm this happy about discovering these things.

  1. I'm sure you'll get like a million points! I need a good book to read. I reserved some new books at the library but then they weren't ready before I had to leave after Colton's storytime yesterday!
