The Countdown Challenge

I am going to try and complete this challenge!

I have to read tons of books for my Literature of Youth class, so I think I will stick with YA books.

  • 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.
  • This challenge lasts from 9/9/09 through 10/10/10.
  • Crossovers with other challenges are allowed and your lists may change at any time.
