YA 2010 Reading Challenge

I've chosen to join this challenge because it aligns with my reading habits but more because I like group activities; they're opportunities to discover new reads.

There are four levels:

--The Mini YA Reading Challenge – Read 12 Young Adult novels.

--Just My Size YA Reading Challenge – Read 25 Young Adult novels.

--Stepping It Up YA Reading Challenge – Read 50 Young Adult novels.

--Super Size Me YA Reading Challenge – Read 75 Young Adult novels.

3. Audio, eBooks, paper all count.

4. No need to list your books in advance. You may select books as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed.

5. Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010.

I'm going for Stepping It Out. I normally read YA. In 2010, I'm going to spend some time reading adult so I'll stick with 50 for this. I'm adding my short list for now:

Hi GG,
Real thanks is due to Ari at Reading In Color. I learned about your book from Ari who is an amazing resource and inspiration for me.
