2009: Challenges – Countdown Challenge 2010

countdown10 I had a lot of fun with the Countdown Challenge 2009, so I’m in it for another year.  Here’s the skinny:

  1. 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 — 10 books from 2010, 9 books from 2009, 8 books from 2008, etc. The total number of books required, therefore, is 55.
  2. This challenge lasts from 9/9/09 through 10/10/10.
  3. Crossovers with other challenges are allowed and your lists may change at any time.
  4. Sign up using Mr. Linky.
  5. Have fun reading!
