I don't think I'm going to do the a challenge next year, just keep a list of the books I've read. Looking back at what I've read this year I can see I have changed my reading a lot. Before 2011 I read longer books than I did this year. And I know I've been putting off reading long books.
OFFTOPIC
This is what stopped me from actively participating. I decided I was focusing too much on the finish line and not enough on books I enjoy reading. Looking at LibraryThing I see I'm currently at 63 and even if I got 8 books a month for the rest of the year, I'll only be in the mid 80's.

I love the Nathan Fillon pic Alansplace!!

As for the challenge, I love the idea of it but have learned that I can not push myself or else I'll just stop all together. So, I try not to concentrate on speed too much. I have, however, always felt that I read too slowly/lazily and I am using the challenge as a way to encourage myself to keep reading. I knew when I started this year that I would not make 100, because even though I can read two books a week (if I avg. 100 pgs a day), I rearly do so anymore. I did want to make it to at least 50 (avg 1 book a week), though. It doesn't look like I'll even make that goal this year, unless I "cheat" and stick to short stories.

So my goal next year will still say 100, but I will be happy if I read 50; 1 book a week is not too much for me to ask of myself.

That's more how I pictured him in my head, except messier hair.

Oh, and jeans, not those strange suede pants.

that's the costume (except for the wizard's staff) his character 'captain mal reynolds' wore in the (like the dresden files) single season tv series, 'firefly' it was supposed to suggest the look of the soldiers from the confederacy in the us civil war.

Firefly was an awesome show, especially when you watch the episodes in order instead of jumbled up the way Fox aired them! I love Nathan in Castle but I still miss Firefly!

I had no idea, but then again, I am the only person on the planet never to see Alien or any of its follow ups. As I've stated before, I do not like to be scared and that creature was one scary looking (insert expletive here).

After listening to the audio books, I tend to see Harry as looking quite a bit like Spike (with dark hair and different gear) from Buffy.

Between Marsters doing the voice work, and Spike's black coat... Well, the image is stuck in my mind.
