UPDATE: FAILED challenge
Okay, I'm officially crazy....another challenge! I just couldn't resist. I've been seeing this one around the book blogosphere and it's just so listy! It speaks to my inner organizational self (way inner...I'm talking buried deep inside the outer layers of procrastinator self!).
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.

I'm not going to completely fill in the list now. I'll have to come back to it. And the 2010 books I know will be filled in mostly by ARCs!
