Countdown Challenge

countdownOkay, so 3M is hosting the Countdown Challenge. The point of this challenge is to read 9 books published in 2009, 8 in 2008, 7 in 2007 … you get the point. And the best part of this is that it’s actually RETROACTIVE to August 8th, 2008! So I’ve already done quite a bit of reading that can count towards this challenge.
