100 Books

Saw this on a couple of blogs a couple of days ago, and thought: Cool! I bet I read 100 books a year. In fact, I've already read about 6 or 7 this year, and I feel like I'm not reading very much right now (mostly because I'm trying to write more). So, eHarlequin wants me to keep a blog detailing what I'm reading. No way do I have time to keep two blogs...but wait...what's this in the middle of the page?
"send you an exclusive monthly coupon code worth an additional 10% savings to fuel your reading habit"
ahh...maybe I could take a few minutes here and there to say what I'm reading. If I like it, and why. In fact, about 4 of the books that I've read this year have been Silhouette's. Do I really have time over the year to read 100 books? Absolutely. Do I have time to document them? Probably not, but if they want to give me incentives...well, it's certainly worth a try, hmm? Maybe - if I get really ambitious this weekend - I'll even update my blog template. Stick in a spot on the sidebar for books that I'm reading. Take off the NaNoWriMo meter, and update it with one for my current project (a re-incarnation of the NaNo project). So, here's a recap of what I've read so far, and what I'm reading now:
  • A Lady's Guide to Rakes by Kathryn Caskie
  • The Man Means Business by Annette Broadrick
  • All I Want by Isabel Sharpe
  • The Sins of His Past by Roxanne St. Claire
  • Tycoon Takes Revenge by Anna DePalo
  • A Sorcerer's Treason: A Novel of Isavalta by Sarah Zettel (Just started it)
  • Black Rose by Nora Roberts
  • (Still reading - and yes, I know I'm late getting to this one! :) )
  • Do Fish Drink Water? Puzzling and Improbable Questions and Answers by Bill McLain
So maybe I'll get around to saying what I liked. And as soon as I get the blog set up for that, I'll post the link.

Interesting....So you can only read 100 Harlequin/Silhouette books or any books?

I assumed that it's any books, preferably romance, even more preferably Harelquins and Silhouettes. There's nothing in the registration process that specifies that, though.
