2008: Challenges – 9 for 2009 Challenge

9for9200x1164 The 9 Books for 2009 Challenge is all about reducing your TBR stack.  The rules are:

  • Open to anyone, whether you have a blog or not!
  • No need to register or to announce what you are going to read.
  • Start in any category that you wish.
  • 2 books from this reading challenge can be used in other reading challenges.
  • Just post in the comment section.
  • The genre of the books can be ANYTHING (fiction or non-fiction), but it must be decent (because you have to write reviews about the books).
  • Other reading materials (graphic novels, poetry, museum catalogs, art books, zines etc.) are OK.
  • The book must already be in your bookcase or storage area.
  • The Challenge starts 12/27/08 to 12/27/09. You can post starting on 12/27/08.
  • Format of work can be paper, audio, or electronic.

There’s also a category for each book.  If you go to the site, the categories are explained. I’m not putting together a list yet, I’ll be building it as I go!  But here are my placeholders:
