The Mixology Challenge!

mixology challenge

Haha, did I say I was going to stop joining challenges?

The Mixology Challenge seems really great, though, because it's basically about setting goals for yourself for 2010.  Here are the rules:
  1. List how many books total you want to read in 2010.
  2. List no less than 4 categories for these books and determine how many you'll read in each category. Examples of categories:  by class: fiction / non-fiction / contemporary / classic / newly published / award winning (Booker, Pulitzer); by genre: historical fiction, religious fiction, fantasy, sci-fi, dystopian literatur, memoir, biography, personal or professional growth; by class of author: female / male / Asian / Middle Eastern; other: TBR / review (ARC) books
  3. These books can overlap with other challenges AND even fit more than one category within this challenge.
  4. Audio books do count; re-reads do not.
Sorry, but re-reads are going to be part of my goals.

Here's my list:
  1. 60 books total
  2. 20 romances
  3. 5 re-reads
  4. 3 chunksters (over 600 pages)
  5. 10 mysteries
  6. 5 sci-fi/fantasy
  7. 5 classics
  8. 2 new manga series
These are pretty modest goals, but since I haven't been reading much more than a book a week lately, I better not set the bar too high.

What books do you want to read in 2010?
