Have I mentioned I’m just a little bit addicted to challenges?Â Because I love the idea of fitting the books I read into lists?Â Yes, I have a problem.
This challenge is the Countdown Challenge, hosted by 1morechapter.com.
- 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 â€” 9 books from 2009, 8 books from 2008, etc.Â The total number of books required, therefore, is 45.
- This challenge lasts from 8/8/08 through 9/9/09.Â Yes, it is retroactive to August 8th!
- Crossovers with other challenges are allowed and your lists may change at any time.
- Sign up using Mr. Linky on the challenge site.
- Have fun reading!
I’m sure I’ve already fulfilled a portion of this list since it’s retroactive, but I’ll have to fill those in later! I’ll be putting all of my updates here.
