The Twenty Ten Challenge

Sign me up for another challenge! This one sounds like fun--I like the categories--so I'll give this one a go. Here are the details:
The aim is to read a total 20 books, over ten categories, in 2010.
  • Read 2 books from each category, making a requirement of 20 books total.
  • The categories are intended to be loose guidelines only, if you decide it fits, then it fits. (Apart from those marked **)
  • Categories marked with ** have tighter rules, and these must be followed.
  • Each book can only qualify for one category.
  • Crossovers with other challenges are allowed.
  • Books read from 01/01/2010 to 31/12/2010 are eligible.
So, on with the categories
