Off The Shelf Challenge

Alright, I think this will be the third and final challenge for me this year.

Giving me over 100 books to choose from! Yeah, I own waaaaayyyy too many (unread) books. I'd love to get all of these read, but I'm hoping to become employed, so I doubt I'll be able to do more than 50. Besides that, I only read 45 books in 2010, so upping it to (at least) 50 is a logical step for me.

Any ideas where to start? Leave a comment below, and wish me luck!
