Countdown Challenge 2010

I'm such a sucker for challenges and when I saw the Countdown Challenge 2010 from 1 More Chapter I knew I had to join. The rules are:

  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!
This should be interesting. The total number of books is not a problem, but covering all the years will make it more of a challenge. I look forward to embarking on this one. I'll list my books here as I finish them and mark down my countdown!

I keep thinking about joining this one. I don't know why I am dithering as most of the books I own have been released in the last ten years.
