ARC Reading Challenge 2010

I am participating in the ARC (Advance Reader Copy) Reading Challenge sponsored by Teddy Rose at So Many Precious Books, So Little Time. Participants are asked to choose a level anticipating how many books will be read. I am going to go for the silver and say 24 or fewer. I read more than 50 in 2009, but I am also anticipating returning to work (yay!) and then won't have enough time. I can always move up to gold level if I reach that far!

I will list my ARCs here as I finish them, and link to my reviews.
