I'm still not totally sure which category you're going to do, as you seem to have the full list here, but mention in your comment that you'll probably only read 11 books, leaving out the one you don't like (in which case, you should go for 10 books, because 11 is where you only leave out what you read most). Could you let me know so you're eligible for prizes?

It would be a bit wierd if only people in the US or Canada were eligible, as I'm not living in either one of those countries ;)

I've got you down for 12.
