I, like J.Kaye, found the 2008 version of this challenge a little late in the year to participate, so I’m happy to jump in for 2009! The 1st in a Series Challenge is really pretty simple:
- Anyone can join. You don’t need a blog to participate.
- Read 12 books that are the first in any series. You may read & list your chosen books any time during the year.
- Challenge begins January thru December, 2009.
- You can join anytime between now and December 31, 2009.
I’m not listing books ahead of time, but will build my list here as I go. Join me!
