Reduce Mount TBR Challenge 2010

Instructions:

Any book counts, as long as you INTENDED to read it before January 2010. This includes books on hand (as some have pointed out, they may not be registered, but we're on the honor system, OK?), bookrings you've signed up for, bookrays & books from bookboxes you signed up for, even trades you arranged prior to the challenge beginning. Not new purchases, trades, etc AFTER January 1. That would be books ADDED to your pile. We want to REDUCE the piles we have on hand NOW!

***

My goal is 26 TBRs.
