My Book Bucket List for 2011
I'm really liking the idea of this challenge but I'm going to "tweak" it a bit for my needs.

 My dresser in my bedroom is covered literally with several hundred books! I'm going to make my "bucket list" for this challenge 50 of those. My only rule is-no go backs! If I start to read one and it doesn't grab me, it goes in the get rid of box, not back on top of the dresser. I want those 50 books G-O-N-E one way or another by 12/2011 :)

The rules:
I have MANY books on my shelves that I have not read.  "Too many books, too little time."  Maybe what I need to do is prioritize my reading.  

I have decided that for 2011, I will read 50 of the books that have been sitting on my "to read" shelf for too long, some for  three years or more.

I read at least two books a week, so it should be no problem, right?  I will remind myself of that when the end of 2011 comes, and see how many I may try to cram in at the last minute.  My problem when it comes to reading is , my intentions are good, but I am easily distracted.  There are so many books that I find and want to read, and some great books are moved farther on the back burner.  

 I am going to keep a list in my sidebar for the year, as I read them I will cross them off, that way there will always be a reminder for me when I get on my blog.  It won't become buried under all of my posts and forgotten.
