The 11 in 11 Category Challenge

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.

This group is for anyone who would like to read books from 11 different categories in 2011. The number of books per category is entirely up to you, and it need not be the same number for each category (e.g., "step" challenges are fine).

The challenge will "officially" begin on January 1, 2011, but earlybirds and latecomers are welcome!

Once you get started, please tag your books; that way we can all see what you're reading and be inspired! When you've completed your challenge, post here to let us know.

Share recommendations, be nice, and have fun!

Ready for next year? Check out the 12 in 12 Category Challenge, here: http://www.librarything.com/groups/the12...
