Up to the Challenge?

Although I already put this on my sidebar, I wanted to let you know about two reading challenges I'm participating in starting January 1, 2011!

The first is hosted by "A Room of One's Own". The challenge is to read War and Peace - a chapter a day - in 2011. Totally excited.

War and Peace Readalong - 2011

The second challenge is hosted by "Roof Beam Reader". Eliminate twelve books from your TBR pile. This is always my goal, so it seems like a perfect challenge for me! There are a few catches and you'll need to sign-up to participate, so be sure to follow the link

1. Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk
2. Girl in Hyacinth Blue, Susan Vreeland
