100 Books in a Year Challenge (2014)

Challenge Summary: 
Rules: Read 100 books in 2014 (any genre)

  • You don’t have to select your books ahead of time, you can just add them as you go. Also if you do list them upfront you can change them, nothing is set in stone! The books you choose can crossover into other challenges you have on the go.
  • You can join at anytime. All books read in 2014 count towards the challenge regardless of when you sign up.
  • Audiobooks are accepted.
  • Only fiction, no non-fiction.
  • This challenge can crossover with other challenges.
  • You don’t have to have a blog to join in – for those without a blog but who use Goodreads, Amazon, LibraryThing etc, you can add the URL to where you track your books. If you don’t have a URL at all then choose a name you would like to use and then copy and paste the following link: http://wp.me/p2wdqf-6ZI
  • At the beginning of each month I will be posting an open thread so you can discuss the books you’ve read and/or link up your reviews.

Hosted by/Link: Book Chick City. 100 Books in a Year Challenge

Challenge Start and Ends Dates:  January 1, 2014 - December 31, 2014

My Progress:  57/100 Books

I'm also participating in a separate challenge, but similar through a LibraryThing. So you can also follow my progress and join in with me there. This group is a fantastic group of people, I did the 2013 one last year, and found it to be a very active group. I just combined the two into one post to make it easier on my self to track
