A Century of Books

I've been watching Leaves and Pages read through the 20th century this last year with great joy and wanted to do the same thing (but not all in one year, oh my!).  Anyway, I just found out recently from Canadian Bookworm where the whole thing originated from and am officially joining in.  The Challenge comes from Stuck in a Book and you can find the details for the current round here.


My goal is to read from 1900 to 2000 as I always read lots of current books.  I'll start by putting in the date of books I read then when that slows down I'll start choosing books specifically for this challenge to fill in dates.  In the meantime, I'm going to be gathering books onto a shelf so I have books to choose from.

My personal imposed rules
0. Start date = Jan. 1, 2015
1. End date = No time limit. Expecting 2-3 years.
2. Any book with or viable for an ISBN counts (ie. yes to picture books & graphic novels, no to comic books & individual short stories)

This is just extra here but I thought I'd keep track of anything I read earlier. I'd like to read through the 1800s eventually but am not interested in literature earlier than that with enough passion.
