2010 Young Adult Reading Challenge [Updated]

[Original Post: November 23, 2009, Updated: August 28, 2010, challenge halfway done]

The second, equally pleasurable challenge I have decided to join is J. Kaye's 2010 Young Adult Reading Challenge.  My shelves are full of YA books I am longing to read, and they could always be fuller.

The rules are as follows:

1. Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate.

     --Non-Bloggers: Post your list of books in the comment section of the wrap-up post. To learn how to sign up without having a blog, click here.

2. There are four levels:

     --The Mini YA Reading Challenge – Read 12 Young Adult novels.

     --Just My Size YA Reading Challenge – Read 25 Young Adult novels.

     --Stepping It Up YA Reading Challenge – Read 50 Young Adult novels.

     --Super Size Me YA Reading Challenge – Read 75 Young Adult novels.

3. Audio, eBooks, paper all count.

4. No need to list your books in advance. You may select books as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed.

5. Challenge runs January 1st through December, 2010.

I will be attempting the "Just My Size" Challenge, and I will post my progress here once the Challenge begins.
