TwentyTen Reading Challenge

While I loved the 999 Challenge last year, I'm skipping the 101010 Challenge on LT this year as I just don't think there is any way I'll be able to complete it. What I liked most about the 999 Challenge was the categories and finding books to fit into them. So, I was thrilled to find the TwentyTen Reading Challenge hosted by Bart's Bookshelf. It has the categories I love, but on a much smaller scale.

-Read 2 books from each category, making a requirement of 20 books total.
-The categories are intended to be loose guidelines only, if you decide it fits, then it fits. (Apart from those marked **)
-Categories marked with ** have tighter rules, and these must be followed.
-Each book can only qualify for one category.
-Crossovers with other challenges are allowed.
-Books read from 01/01/2010 to 31/12/2010 are eligible.

This looks like a challenge I'm going to have to check out! The 101010 challenge is just too much for me... it essentially means that every book I read next year would have to meet one of those categories. Too much!

I'm signing up for this one. I am trying to figure out how I can cross over my challenges to kill two birds with one stone. It was just too clever to pass up!
