Last night I signed up for my first (but not last) challenge of 2010: The 2010 Reading From My Shelves Project hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea.
Following is a list of books I intend to read for this challenge. I could have picked hundreds (yes, there are that many to choose from) and I know I will read many books from my different TBR piles/stacks/boxes/shelves throughout the year. However, I only have 24 books on my list- 12 adult books and 12 young adult/middle grade books. That is 2 books per month, and while it might not seem like a lot, I don't think I can commit to too many more than that and still be able to read the new things that are coming out that just call my name and seriously hinder my ability to read my huge stacks of library books. So, we shall just see how it goes.

As I looked through books this morning, there were several I wanted to start immediately, and a few more I have thought of while typing that should have made this list but didn't.
Be lookign for a few more challenges to pop up within the next day. I know of a couple more that I want to join within the next day or two.
