100 Books In 75 Days

On May 20, 2010 the Natrona County Libray turns 100 years old. They are having a contest.
In honor of the library’s 100th anniversary, county citizens are invited to Read 100! between March 1 and May 15. The challenge is to read either 100 chapters or 100 books, as an individual or in a group of friends, family, coworkers or classmates. Books without chapters (children’s books, graphic novels), newspapers, magazines and websites count as one chapter.

Each participant in the Read 100! program will receive a commemorative 100th Anniversary library card after finishing 50 chapters/books, and an entry into the grand-prize drawing after completing 100 chapters/books.

The grand prize is a basket full of 100 items including Wyoming and library memorabilia, books, tickets, snacks, and other items of interest. Reading logs for individuals and groups will be available at all library branches starting February 22.

I am going to go for the Gold (to honor the Olympics) and try to read 100 books in 75 days. I know the contest allows for teams and includes magazines and newspapers, but that is too easy for me. I am going to aim for 100 books in 75 days. Given my unemployment status I should be able to attain this goal. If I am lucky enough to find a job between now and May 15th, I realize that I may not hit my goal. And I am okay with that.

What do you think? Am I crazy? It is going to be a wild 75 days. Wish me luck.

If anyone can do it, you can. Throw some YA books in there, a lot of them are such fast reads, and so good it'll be worth it!

Stopping by to send you positive vibes for this challenge!! I agree with Lisa... read YA novels and maybe a few children's books to lighten things up a bit. Most importantly, HAVE FUN READING!!

Thanks for the well wishes! I am sure the time will just fly right by.

That is quite ambitious! I am currently reading Under the Dome, so I'd be way behind by the time I finish that one. :)

Good luck!

Thanks, Rita.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
