#91. Finish Book Lists 1-3 Details

January 24, 2010

91.) Finish Book Lists 1-3

Objective: To finish all the books on the first three book lists that my yahoo! group book club created.

Motivation: I hope to read all the book s on every book list my book club creates, but I am starting with the first 3. Following the book lists gives me the opportunity to expand the types of books I usually read.

Hurdles: None. This shouldn’t be too difficult.

Proposed Timeline: I hope to have this completed in the next couple months, maybe sooner.

Related Goals: This ties into my goal of reading an average of one book a month. I can work on both at the same time!
