The TwentyEleven Challenge

I wasn't really going to do challenges next year, but there are a few people that I consider friends and I want to support their challenges, so I will slowly join a few. Plus, this is a creative idea and I had a lot of fun with it last year. I am hoping to be a bit more organized next year, though.

So, really simple. Read 20 books from 11 categories. To see a more in-depth explanation and see a description for each category head over and visit Bart's Bookshelf.
