Challenges/Games 2011

Here are my challenges for 2011, wish me luck!

I found this challenge through Pen and Paper, but it originates from What's in a name 4, for the rules and to sign up press HERE. I figured since I'm already participating in the 100+ reading challenge (further down), I might as well join another one as well.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
BOOKS READ:
1. A book with a number in the title: 31 DREAM STREET - Lisa Jewell

2. A book with jewelery or a gem in the title:

3. A book with size in the title:

4. A book with travel or movement in the title: TO THE MOON AND BACK - Jill Mansell

5 A book with evil in the title: WORLD FAMOUS SERIAL KILLERS - Colin and Damon Wilson

6. A book with a life stage in the title: THE PILOT'S WIFE - Anita Shreve

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have been reading Tracy's(...Petty Witter) blog: Pen and Paper for a while. She is participating in the 100+ reading challenge (click here to see how she's getting along), started by My Overstuffed Bookshelf. I really enjoy reading her reviews, and her book reviews have made me add a lot of books to my "Book I want to Read" list.

Anyway. I decided I want to join the challenge as well. I don't know if I'll actually manage to read 100 books, but it will be fun just to see how many books I'll manage to get through in a year. This will also be the first time ever that I'm counting how many books I'm reading. I'm starting it now, in May, as I can't remember all the books I've read earlier this year. Instead of just reading the books, I will also try to write a post about each about what I thought of the book etc. You can find my list of books and links to the posts about them below.

If you want to see the rules and/or join in, just click the linked up "My overstuffed Bookshelf" above.
