2009 Read-Your-Own-Books (RYOB) Challenge

Having signed up for the 100+ Reading Challenge yesterday, I thought I'd better sign up for the Read-Your-Own-Books Reading Challenge today!

The rules for the RYOB Challenge are simple: Choose the number of books to read off of your own shelves between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2009 and read them ;o). My goal is to have at least half of my 100+ books come from books I already own (as of this date - the only exceptions being books I get with my Christmas gift cards. After all, those were supposed to be Christmas books. How's that for a little rationalization ;o)).
So, my goal is to read at least 50 of my own books in 2009. I'll come back and add to this post as I finish and review books this year.
