101 books in 1,001 Days

I've done a 1,001 day challenge in the past, of course I failed. But I've never done a 101 books in 1,001 day challenge. Now of course reading 101 books in 1,001 days is too easy for me. So I have to find a way to make it harder. Now I picked that genre because I love them, so it will be enjoyable, and I'll probably read 101 in 18 months, but hey, it is a goal.

So I've decided to try to read 101 memoir/autobiographies/biographies in 1,001 days. That is approx 3 m/a/b a month, now that's a challenge!

I tallied up all my m/a/b reads in recent years. I got 45. I didn't count the ones I read in my 20s, I stuck with the 30s up. Since I started keeping track of exactly what I've been reading (2006) I have read 36 m/a/b. I guess if I work at it, I should be able to get to 101 in 2 years and 9 months.

Start date: August 11, 2009
End date: May 11, 2012
