100+ Books Reading Challenge

100+ Books In A Year Reading Challenge 2012

Hosted by: Book Chick City
I came in way under my personal reading goal for 2011 - 83/100,
so this year I'm making a commitment and joining the 100+ challenge!
This challenge is pretty straightforward.  For the entire list of rules, click on the button above.  The rules that I am going to find most challenging?
- No audiobooks
- Fiction only
Oh boy.
Edited to Add 1/29/12:  You know what?  I don't like the "Fiction only" rule. Some of my favorite reading last year surprisingly came from non-fiction.  How could I not include stunning work like Unbroken or Bossypants or The Glass Castle?  I'm going to include my non-fiction.
Edited to add 2/29/12:  I guess I don't like rules.  I'm adding in my audiobooks.  Who said audiobooks don't count?  Should I then not include the books I read aloud to my son?  I don't do well with rules.
 Hopefully, at the end of the year, I will have had enough fiction, printed books that I won't have to count my audio and non-fiction...
