100 Books in 2010

I saw this idea on my friend Jaclyn's blog and just had to jump in. I love to read and thought this would be a fun way to try and hit 100 books. So the idea is that in 2010, I'll read ten books within ten different categories of my choosing. And eventually read 100 books in total. If anyone has any great ideas in any of these categories, I'm open to suggestions.

1- LDS non-fiction books (stole this category)
2- Classics (because as an English major I really should have read these)
3- Historical fiction (fell in love with these after Cleopatra's Daughter)
4- Books from Oprah's book club list
5- Books written in 1985 (the year I was born, stole this one from Jac too)
6- Books that were made into movies (or vice versa)
7- Books I'm sent to review by publishers (since I'll do this anyway)
8- Books that have the number ten in the title
9- Books set in DC (at least partially)
10- Books from the 2009 NY Times Best Sellers List.

With Richie studying for the bar this summer, I think this is the year I can do it. I'm going to update my main blog as I go but may post about it here every once in a while too.


  1. for category 3 read "The Book of Negroes" - sooo good.

  2. Another Category 3 suggestion: "And Ladies of the Club..."

  3. Cool idea. I wish you luck. Here are a couple of suggestions:

    Category 3: "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett
    I also second kcinnova's suggestion of "And Ladies of the Club ..." That may also meet your 1985 category. It came out about that time.

    Category ^: "The Lovely Bones" I read this long before the movie came out. It's a beautifully written book.


Thanks for joining our discussion of this book!
