2009 Reading Challenges

I've decided to join in on a few reading challenges this year, these shouldn't be too difficult for me, I think they will fit in fine with what I would normally do, so not a lot of pressure! I've joined all of these over on J. Kaye's Book Blog, so if you think they sound like fun and would like to join in, head on over there and sign up, they're listed on her side bar. J. Kaye's Book Blog

I think as an extra challenge to myself, I won't let any book count for more than one challenge, even though I know they will overlap. We'll see if I can do it!
