101 books 1,001 days

I must be going crazy... but after browsing through several bookaholics's websites, I realize how many challenges there are out there. Who knew?!

I especially liked the '101 books in 1,001 days' one - a twist off of the '101 things to do in 1,001 days' non-book challenge.

This way, I'll decrease the number of books on my TBR - and be committed. (These books are all off of my "To Read Before I Die" list. Can you tell I love lists?)
