5-5-10 Reading Challenge

Okay, I've decided to join a reading challenge.  Sort of.

From my favorite podcast, Books on the Nightstand, I read about the 10-10-10 Reading Challenge where readers challenge themselves to read 10 books in 10 different genres of their choosing by October 10, 2010.  This challenge is definitely too much for me.  First, I certainly can't keep up with a 2 book per week reading pace.  Second, I'm hearing about the challenge halfway through.  But I really like the idea of picking a few genres that have been "background" goals of mine for a while and using a challenge like this to help motivate myself to dig into those areas.

So, my modified reading challenge for myself will be:  5 books in 5 different genres by the end of 2010.

My 5 genres will be:
- Graphic novels
- Jason's favorites
- Mysteries
- From the to-be-read shelf
- History (nonfiction)

So here goes Day One!  :-)
