Challenge: 999

Honestly, I'm not sure how I got talked into this one! (I blame my Twitter friends.) This is a Library Thing challenge (rules are here), complete with its own blog.

Here are the simple rules: (1) Pick nine categories. (2) Read nine books in each of those categories. (3) Finish by December 31, 2009. You can overlap nine books. Although you have all year, try to finish by 9/9/09!

These are my categories:

1. Young adult
2. Historical fiction
3. Mysteries
4. Nonfiction historyNewly bought books
5. Audiobooks
6. Library books
7. New to me authors
8. From my TBR stack
9. EITHER biographies/memoirs OR graphic novels

I don't think I'll list books ahead of time. The only way I can do this is to make sure the books for the LT challenge overlap the books I've got set up for other challenges. So that's what I've done. I wish myself luck!

EDIT: Category 9 may change to "Impulse reads" (stolen from a fellow 999 participant).

I won't be able to list all my books ahead of time. One is I don't know all of them I'll be reading. ;)

Glad you are joining in this one!!
