I was, initially, going to lower my goal from 100 to 50 (which seemed more attainable) but as I thought about all of the books I really wanted to read, my list shot right back up! So here is my very ambitious (for me) challenge in 2012:

I want to read the following series in full, which includes rereading the earlier books in preparation for the ones that are new to me:

1. Dresden Files & bonus stories (I've read 1 & 2)

2. Rachel Morgan/The Hollows & bonus stories (I've read 1 - 5 or 6, I don't remember)

3. Honor Harrington & bonus stories (I've read 1 - 9 and part of 10)

4. Black Dagger Brotherhood series (I've read 1 - 6)

Plus:

(a) I'd like to read all of The Mobile Read Book Club Selections (depending on price & availability)

(b) The following Literary Book Club selections: February-Time Period, May-Region, June-Short Stories & December-Open (also depending on price & availability)

(c) The Iliad - over a 4 to 6 week period starting January 9th (suggested and to be organized by issybird)

*Bonus material: select works by Charles Dickens

I'm not sure how to sum all of that up into one challenge, though.

Suggestions welcome!
Goal: read Dresden Files, Rachel Morgan, Honerverse, Black Dagger Brotherhood series, MR BookClub and Literary BookClub when possible, some Charles Dickens, and be able to get a good night's sleep by trying to read The Iliad.
