2010: Challenges – Countdown Challenge 2011

This is not an official challenge, because I can’t find anyone hosting it! The original challenge is one of my favorites, so I’m going to go ahead and do it on my own.  If I felt a little more dedicated, I’d actually host it myself — but I’d feel a little funny usurping someone else’s challenge idea.  So for now, it’s just me, but if you want to join me, feel free!

If you’re not familiar, the idea is that you read 11 books published in 2011, 10 books published in 2010, 9 books published in 2009, etc, until you get to 2001.  The challenge runs from 10/10/10 to 11/11/11, so I’m going to be adding the books I’ve posted about since 10/10.
