The Countdown Challenge



What: The Countdown Challenge
When: 8 August 2008 – 9 September 2009
Who: 3M (
Rules (copied from site):

  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 — 9 books from 2009, 8 books from 2008, etc.  The total number of books required, therefore, is 45.
  2. This challenge lasts from 8/8/08 through 9/9/09.  Yes, it is retroactive to August 8th!
  3. Crossovers with other challenges are allowed and your lists may change at any time.

Because it’s retroactive, I’ve nearly knocked out the 2008 requirements already, plus a few for other years — eight books, with a ninth almost finished. I’m going to set up a separate page for this challenge, when I have more time.
