Countdown 2010 Challenge

Guess I just can't stay away from the challenges. :o) I just finished one last weekend, and I guess I'm a glutton for punishment since I decided to start up another one. The Countdown 2010 Challenge is being hosted by 1morechapter.

So, here's how it'll work....

1. The goal of this challenge is to read the number of books first published in a given year that corresponds to the last digit of each year in the 2000s — 10 books from 2010, 9 books from 2009, 8 books from 2008, etc. The total number of books required, therefore, is 55.

2. This challenge lasts from 9/9/09 through 10/10/10.

3. Crossovers with other challenges are allowed and your lists may change at any time.

I'm not going to list anything ahead of time, but just list as I go. Wish me luck! :o)
