- 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.
- This challenge lasts from 8/8/08 through 9/9/09. Yes, it is retroactive to August 8th!
- 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.
