January 8, 2011: The 100+ challenge?!?

PAGES READ: 50
YEAR TO DATE: 395
CURRENTLY READING: Netherland by Joseph O’Neill
BOOKS COMPLETED: 1

One book down, 395 pages in. Only 17,855 to go…

It seems there’s a challenge floating around in the blogosphere to read 100+ books in 2011. Are these people insane? Do they have any friends? Have they taken a speed reading course? It seems that many of the challenge adopters favour the teenage vampire genre, but still. Makes my project seem a bit piddly in comparison.

My choice of counting pages instead of books is a vote for quality over quantity. I can tackle the big guys without worrying about messing up the count. And I don’t have to read any teenage vampire books to boost my stats.  There, now I’m feeling a bit smug.
