2008: Challenges – Books Awards II Challenge

bookawardsdraft2small Okay, I think this will be the last challenge I sign up for until a finish a few!  This is the Book Awards II Challenge. The challenge here is to choose 10 award winners from at least 5 different awards lists to read between August 1, 2008 and June 1, 2009. I don’t technically have to choose my books yet, but I like to have a starting point so I’ve chosen 10.  I may make changes along the way.
