9 Books For 2009 Challenge

The Rules:

  • Open to anyone, whether you have a blog or not!
  • No need to register or to announce what you are going to read.
  • Start in any category that you wish.
  • 3 books from this reading challenge can be used in other reading challenges.
  • Just post in the comment section.
  • The genre of the books can be ANYTHING (fiction or non-fiction), but it must be decent (because you have to write reviews about the books).
  • Other reading materials (graphic novels, poetry, museum catalogs, art books, zines etc.) are OK.
  • The book must already be in your bookcase or storage area.
  • The Challenge starts 12/27/08 to 12/27/09. (I hate to begin anything on January 1st).
    You can post starting on 12/27/08.
  • Format of work can be paper, audio, or electronic.

There are 9 categories to this challenge. I have posted the categories (see the website for details on these categories) and which books I am reading for each below. Once complete, I will add the link.

  • Long: The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
  • Free: Son of a Witch by Gregory Maguire
  • Dusty: Sounds of the River by Da Chen
  • Used: The Bishop's Mantle by Agnes Sligh Turnbull
