Reading this year (aiming for 100...)

 Now I dont really need any excuse to read, and I have an enormous and ever-increasing collection of books on the end of the desk (and beside the bed and beside my favourite chair), but this was a challenge I thought I just might take up....  How hard could it be to read 100 books in a year?  Then I got out my list from 2009 (a sad but true confession of obsession) and found that the total was only 60 something.  And since I had had lots of time for reading last year, maybe it wasn't going to be so easy.  We shall see.
