2009 TBR Challenge

To remind you of 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 (even if it's in a comment here)
* 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! :)

Okay! The countdown is on!!! Get your list(s) ready, and make sure you post the link to it in the Mr. Linky! ;)

You have to read Curse of the Spellmans... I loved that book! I am curious to see what you think of Beverly Barton as I have quite a few of hers to read as well on the TBR shelves. You look like you have some excellent reads coming up!

I will let you know what I think. I was not crazy about the first one.

I need to put my list together for this one. I did terrible on this challenge this year, but I aim to do better this next year. I have a plan! :-)

Your list for the challenge looks like a lot of fun! Good luck!

I hope your plan works.
I read 19 out of 24 this year. So not to bad. In fact some of the ones I did not read this year are on next years list. for next years list I tried to mix things up a bit.
I can't wait to see your list.
