Pub Reading Challenge

Here are the rules

Here are the 2009 rules:

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.
No children’s/YA titles allowed, since we’re at the ‘pub.’
At least 5 titles must be fiction.
Crossovers with other challenges are allowed.
You can add your titles as you go, and they may be changed at any time.
Sign up below using Mr. Linky.
Have fun reading your 2009 books!

I love this challenge. I love reading books when they are newly published and this will give me an excuse to buy some new ones. I know I can use library books but any excuse to buy a book works for me. FOr this challenge I plan on reading 20 books

I am glad you are joining this challenge... I always get great recommendations from you!

I hope you had a great Christmas and have been reading... I have missed you around blogland lately!

I am so far behind on reading blogs but now that Christmas is over with I hope to have time to catch up.

Christmas was good. Reading is going slow. Work has been insane. And then there is the grandkids. I promise to get to your blog in the next few days and get caught up.
