52 in 52

I decided I really wanted to read more this year. I read a lot, but it's all sort of disjointed and a lot of it is unfinished.
So my goal is to read 52 books during 2010.
Book 1 is already done.
I went to the library with my seester and nephew on Saturday and checked out:
A Song I Knew by Heart by Bret Lott
Time Travelers Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
The Geometry Sisters by Luanne Rice

Other fiction in the queue:
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
Suite Francais by Irene Nemirovsky

I'll also be adding in quite a few non-fiction books too, but after a few years of living in non-fiction I'm really enjoying fiction again.
I also have quite possibly 52 books at home that I've not read yet that I've bought myself, inherited from people I love and just found a long the way. But that won't stop me from going to the library! However I am not allowed to buy new books at all. I don't have the money and it's just silly to buy books where there are lovely libraries all around my house.

So that's my challenge! 52 in 52 and beyond.

What a great goal!

I would shoot for 5 in 52, but I know I couldn't achieve even that. lol.
