Vampire Challenge '09

I have pushed myself this year with my reading challenges and decided to join another one. I know it sounds crazy, but this one seems really easy. I found this posted on a blog that I found a few days ago, that is wicked good and the idea came from another blog It's All About Books


VAMPIRE READING CHALLENGE 2009

What?
For the Vampire Challenge you will read books with vampires - romance, YA, paranormal, mysteries - anything, as long as there's a or two (or more) vampires in it.
When?
The challenge will start January 1, 2009 and end December 31, 2009.
How?
The goal is to read 2+ books with vampires in 2009, that's it. It's fairly easy, I think. For some inspiration check out this post on vampires in books.To sign up, please leave a comment here with a link to your blog post.
My list of books read so far this year:
1) Marked by PC & Kristen Cast
2) Betrayed by PC & Kristen Cast
3) Chosen by PC & Kristen Cast
4) Untamed by PC & Kristen Cast
5) Frostbite by Richelle Mead
6) Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead
7) City of Glass by Cassandra Clare

I know, I know...what am I thinking, but since I already read my quota I figured that it would not hurt :)

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
