Countdown 2009 Challenge – Incomplete

advertisefeedback

What: The Countdown Challenge
When: 8 August 2008 – 9 September 2009
Who: 3M (1morechapter.com)
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.

~~ & ~~

Though I came nowhere close to completing this challenge, I’m not disappointed and I think I did rather well. I enjoyed it and I’m glad that 3M is hosting Countdown 2010. I plan to sign up for that one.  Three of the books don’t have a review yet, but I will post them and update with links as I get to them.

Below are the results:

27 out of 45= 60%  (over half the required books)
