Christy Awards Challenge



Heh, I suppose since I'm running the challenge I better post up what books I'm going to read.

Anywho, I'm doing the perpetual challenge and reading ALL the books that have been nominated and there's no time limit for me. I've read a good chunk, but apparently not as many as I thought seeing as how I still have a bunch left per below. Getting some of these will be hard as some are OOP. But it will be good for me because some of these are genres I normally don't read.

I wonder how long it will take me to read them all....

For more information about the challenge go here.

These are all the books I haven't read yet, books I have already read, I've taken out. Books will be crossed out when read.
