Challenge: Countdown 2010

Countdown 2010Well, why not? And since I can count YA books, I should be able to complete this challenge much more easily than my Pub 2009 challenge!

Here are some of the rules:

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.

Total: 28/55
