2011 Book Challenge

Last year I participated in a book challenge and exceeded my goal of 52 books.
For 2011 I've decided to challenge myself to read/listen to 70 books.

Books over 50 pages count as one book. Books with fewer than 50 pages count as one half book. Audiobooks count as one half book.

Edit 01/10/11 - I just found an e-book reading challenge on The Ladybug Reads . My goal is the Possessed level of 50 e-books.
That leaves 20 books in my overall reading challenge for physical books and audiobooks.

I'll be using this post to keep track of the books I read.
