Titanic 100th Anniversary Reading Challenge

January 1, 2012 – December 31, 2012

I've looked and haven't been able to find one for this already so decided to make my own!  2012 is the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic and as such we can expect a rush of new books out this year dealing with this topic or theme, plus of course there are already many such books in existence.
First the rules, then why I like the Titanic.  I like challenges that run all year; it takes the pressure off.  So this challenge will run from now until Dec. 31, 2012.  Any books you've posted reviews of recently will qualify as well.  And all types of media will count for this challenge paper books, ebooks, audio books, historical fiction, fiction with a titanic theme, non-fiction, movies, TV shows and documentaries.  By the end of the year we should know our Titanic trivia!

There are two levels:
Beginner: read or watch a combination of 6 (six) Titanic related material
Expert:  read or watch a combination of 12 (twelve) Titanic related material
I just ask that you try and mix up your media, whichever level you join (ie don't just read fiction, or just watch documentaries, try to get a bit of variety such as a few historical fiction, some non-fiction, a movie, a documentary for an example)  but I won't be the Titanic police if you really must only read/watch one genre/media but since it is a reading challenge you must at least include one book in your choices.

Sign up in the comments below and then add links to your reviews using the linky form below.
Feel free to continue adding links to your reviews even after you complete your goal! The more comprehensive a list we have here the better!
