2011 52 Week Challenge

Beginning in 2011, my goal is to read an average of one book per week or 52 books in the year.  Here are the rules I’m setting for myself:

  1. Books can be on any topic or subject;
  2. Books can be fiction or non-fiction;
  3. No more than two titles by the same author will count towards the goal;
  4. A series of books by different authors will count towards the goal (example: Lutheran Voices);
  5. Books for review/blog tours will count towards the goal.

Please feel free to offer suggestions for books you fee I should read.
