Challenges, Challenges, Challenges

Yesterday was the start of the majority of my 2009 challenges. Here is a list of everything I'm doing, click on the challenge title to go to my original post, where you'll find information about the challenge plus my book list. If anything looks inviting, be sure to check it out, you may still have time to join in the fun.

Note: Almost all of my challenges overlap, so my reading commitment for 2009 is not as bad as it looks. I've committed to just over 100 books, which is my yearly average (this doesn't count the U.S. Presidents challenge, which is perpetual).

You have some very interesting challenges lined up, Beth :-) I wish I was able to join even more challenges, but my winter and spring is going to be very busy, so I will not have time for too much reading until summer, unfortunately. But among yours which sound very interesting are the graphics challenge and the art history challenge.
