1% Well-Read

1% Well ReadHosted by 3 M at 1morechapter.  The goal of this challenge is to read 10 books in 10 months from the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die list. For you non-math people, 10 out of 1001 is approximately 1%, hence the title. The challenge will run from May 1, 2008 through February 28, 2009. You may change your list at any time and cross-posting to other challenges is permitted. The only requirement is that your ten book choices must be on the ‘1001 List‘.

Okay, this is right up my alley!  One of my life goals is to read at least 500 books from the 1001 list (see my progress and the list here) so this will push me along.  These are my choices thus far and I can change them anytime (yay!)

  2. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any oakley sunglasses uk problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any methods to help reduce content from being ripped off? I’d certainly appreciate it.
