Countdown Challenge 2010 – Incomplete

What: Countdown Challenge 2010
When: 9 September 2009 – 10 October 2010
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 — 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.

Due to the nature of this challenge, I’ve created a separate page to track my progress.

~~ & ~~

And so another challenge ends . . . incomplete. I only managed to read 22 books that counted toward this challenge. The goal was 55, so that’s about 40%.

I guess when you look at it that way, it’s not so bad. For Countdown 2009, I came in at 60% (10 less books required)

I don’t think the hostess is doing a 2011 challenge. Even so, I don’t think this is one I’d continue with anyway.

Countdown Challenge 2010 – Incomplete — 2 Comments

  1. Hi! found you when I was looking for the 2011 countdown challenge. I didn’t do very well anyway – It sounds like this is doable, but with all the newer releases, it was hard for me to get to the older books – even though they really aren’t that old.

    I think I’d like to try one more time – but I haven’t found any links yet either.

    • I don’t think she’s going to host the challenge again. I’ve noticed that she hasn’t updated her personal blog since the spring.
