Book Review: 1001 Books to Read Before You Die - 2012

Challenge Summary:

Rules: 
• Challenge runs January 1 2012 – December 31 2012.
 • You don’t have to make a list beforehand.
 • You DO need to choose your level at the beginning so you have a chance to win the prize!
• You can use any version of the list, not just the current, since they update it every couple years. I figure, once a book is on the list, it is always on the list!
• Books that cover other challenges are not only permitted, but encouraged!

• **ADDED*** Non bloggers are welcome to participate! Just sign up and leave a comment on this post letting me know what you are going for. At the end, provide a list of what you read this year via shelfari, LibraryThing, goodreads, or just a list of books! But if you review anything on those sites, link to the review post so we can see what you thought!
• You do NOT have to review every book you read for this challenge – it is an extra so that the rest of us can see what you thought!
• Sign up in Mr Linky!
