1. Read a minimum of 9 books first published in 2009. You don’t have to buy these. Library books, unabridged audios, or ARCs are all acceptable. To qualify as being first published in 2009, it must be the first time that the book is published in your own country. For example, if a book was published in Australia, England, or Canada in 2008, and then published in the USA in 2009, it counts (if you live in the USA). Newly published trade paperbacks and mass market paperbacks do not count if there has been a hardcover/trade published before 2009. Any questions on what qualifies? Just leave a comment here, and I’ll respond with the answer.
2. No children’s/YA titles allowed, since we’re at the ‘pub.’
3. At least 5 titles must be fiction.
4. Crossovers with other challenges are allowed.
5. You can add your titles as you go, and they may be changed at any time.
6. Sign up using Mr. Linky.
7. Have fun reading your 2009 books!
So, what books am I going to be reading?
1. Real Life & Liars – Kristina Riggle (June 2009)
2. Posed for Murder – Meredith Cole (February 2009)
3. The Marshmallow Effect – Dorothy Koomson (January 2009)
4. The Mighty Queens of Freeville – Amy Dickinson (February 2009)
5. The Girl Who Played With Fire – Stieg Larsson (January 2009)
I know it’s kind of a sad list, but I’m going to add to it as I learn about more ’09 titles. I’ll update this page, as well as my sidebar, with the books I’m completing for the challenge.
