Countdown 2010 Challenge

I finished last year's Countdown Challenge hosted by Michelle at 1MoreChapter a couple of days ago and now it's time to start the 2010 version of this challenge.

Here are the rules:
  • 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.
  • This challenge lasts from 9/9/09 through 10/10/10.
  • Crossovers with other challenges are allowed and your lists may change at any time.
  • Have fun reading!
I'm hoping to take most of the 55 books (except for the 2010 ones) off of my bookshelves. I'll come back and fill in the blanks when I've read a book for that year.

Good luck! and I have a quick question. How do you get that bar on your side of the blog that tells you the % ? I've been looking at how to do that but I'm not sure what it's called.
