75 Books Challenge for 2010

We had a great year in 2009, and now we want to do it again in 2010!

Anyone can join. Just start a thread and begin listing the books you have read in 2010. You don't have to begin on January 1. Last year, some members just listed their titles and authors while others posted a mini-review of each book. It's all up to you. It turns out we care less about the numbers than we do about the exchange of book info and the community of readers.

We hope you'll join us, but be forewarned. We like to comment on each other's threads and we've found our stacks of books to be read have grown exponentially!

We tried something new this year. If you sort threads by topic, interesting group-related threads should be at the top!

Some useful threads:
