To tackle my large TBR list, I’ve joined the TBR Challenge 2009 from Avid Book Reader.  I’m still sorting through my TBR’s, but have chosen a few books for the first few months of the challenge.

January – Everything’s Coming Up Rosie – Kasey Michaels – I’m shocked that I have an unread book for the hqn category.  I thought for sure I would have to pick something else.

February – Lord of Scoundrels – Loretta Chase – the number one romance for the last three Top 100 Polls at AAR and DIK (Desert Island Keeper) status.

Confession ….. I’ve failed horribly at this challenge.  I did manage to read February’s book, and really liked it – but never wrote a review – and it kind of ended there. 😦


The other challenge I joined is J. Kaye’s 100+ Reading Challenge 2009.  I’m already three books down,(1/10/09)  with 97 to go. 🙂  I’ll keep updating my list of completed books here. Update 4/8/09 – I’m up to 49 books – halfway there, with more than half the year left.  Update 5/21 – 66 books.  Update 9/6 – 87 books.
