2010 Reading Challenges-Tracking Page

11/17/2010-44 challenges-2 go until 2011
45 Challenges Completed
1  not started
3 challenges  begun with at least one book read  

So far I have signed up for 46 reading challenges  2010.   I have already explained why I am doing so many challenges (and may well commit to more as the new year approaches).   Appearances possibly aside, I am not simply signing up for all the challenges I can find.   I only will sign up for a challenge that will basically allow me to fully direct my own reading.   I am not attracted to what I have called "gimmick" challenges and have explicitly stated this is just a personal preference not a slam on some great challenges.    To me one of the challenges of all these challenges is just keeping track of them.   I have created this web page for that purpose.   I will update it  as I go through the year and I will also list what I have read on the individual challenge posts.
