Last year my challenge was to read 100 books and I made it to 114. However, I'm starting 2010 without a challenge. I'm not sure if I'm relieved about that or bummed out. I guess my challenge right now is just to try to surpass 114. Maybe make it to 150.
Seeing as how it's the first day of the year, I haven't finished a book yet for 2010, but these are the books that are currently in the running for the first book I finish in the new year:
1. Holding On to Good Ideas in a Time of Bad Ones: Six Literacy Principles Worth Fighting For by Thomas Newkirk
2. How to Steal a Dog by Barbara O'Connor
1. Al Capone Shines My Shoes by Gennifer Choldenko
