Why yes, I realize how long this list is. But I read between 150 and 250 books a year (I don't actually have heaping amounts of free time, but I do have more than the average mother-of-six-million-children-with-a-day-job-and-writer-on-the-side, and I have learned over the years how to find time for reading), and these are already on my to-read list, so I think I should have no problem doing this challenge.

Are you doing this as well? What books do you plan to read and how many?
