Mixology Book Challenge

January 1 - December 31, 2010

Babbette's Book Blog is hosting the 2010 Mixology Book Challenge.  Here's what she says:

In addition to just thinking about reducing the size of my TBR, I want to think about what my 'mix' of books for 2010 will look like. So, what I'm talking about is less of a challenge and is more goal setting.

For 2009 I set three goals as they related to reading: 30 books total, 5 non-fiction, and 5 classics. Two out of three ain't bad, so I hear.

So, for 2010, my "challenge" is called Mixology, and the rules are pretty simple.

1. List how many books total you want to read in 2010.

2. List no less than 4 categories for these books and determine how many you'll read in each category.
Examples of categories:
by class: fiction / non-fiction / contemporary / classic / newly published / award winning (Booker, Pulitzer)
by genre: historical fiction, religious fiction, fantasy, sci-fi, dystopian literatur, memoir, biography, personal or professional growth
by class of author: female / male / Asian / Middle Eastern
other: TBR / review (ARC) books

3. These books can overlap with other challenges AND even fit more than one category within this challenge.

4. Audio books do count; re-reads do not.

If you don't have a blog, and you want to participate, post your list in the comments.
