Maybe I'll read 100 this year....

If you're a book worm like me, and you'd rather be reading than almost anything else, and you have a H-U-G-E pile of books on the desk that you are determined to read this year........... then this might be just the spur you need.  Last year I managed a little over 50 books and am determined to do better this year (who needs a dusted mantlepiece anyway??).
