52 books in 52 Weeks

January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012
Are you ready for another round of Reading 52 books in 52 Weeks?  Whether you are just joining in or continuing on for another round, the rules are very simple.  The goal is to read one book (at least) a week for 52 weeks.  Make the year easy and casual or kick it up by exploring new to you authors and genres. Challenge yourself to read at least one classic a month or delve into that chunkster (more than 600 pages) you always wanted to tackle.  The goal is to read 52 books. How you get there is up to you.   
I have several mini challenges to make it fun: 
12 in 2012: Read 12 books in 12 different categories
A to Z challenge: Read books alphabetically by title and/or author.
Jane Austen: Read all things Jane Austen
Mind Voyages:  Explore the Hugo and Nebula winners, take side trips through the different decades reading the nominees.
Well Educated Mind:   Explore the classics in five categories: Fiction, Autobiography, History/Politics, Drama and Poetry.
