2009 TBR Challenge

I'm very excited to have just finished the 2008 TBR Challenge (a wrap-up post is sure to appear soon). It was touch and go there for a while, I wasn't sure I was going to be able to complete it ;o).

Next year I also plan to focus on the books that have already found their way into my home. So, naturally, I'm signing up for the 2009 TBR challenge hosted by MizB.

Here are the rules:

* The challenge is to read 12 TBR books in 12 months -- you can read those all in one month if you want, or one a month, or however you wanna do it.
* You need to have a list posted somewhere for others to see
* You CANNOT change your list after January 1st, 2009!!!
* You can create an Alternates list of MAXIMUM 12 books, if you want, in order to have options to choose from (you can read these in place of books on your original list).
* Audiobooks and e-books ARE allowed
* Re-reads are NOT allowed, as they aren't TRUE "TBRs"
* You CAN overlap with other challenges
* OPTIONAL: you can join the Yahoo! Group created for participants of the TBR Challenge, if you want to have a place to keep your list, or just to share with others about how you're doing! :)
