2nds Challenge 2009



J. Kaye from J. Kaye's Book Blog is hosting this one too (boy, will she be busy in 2009!). The 2009 Seconds Challenge requires us to read 12 books by authors we've read only once, between 1 January and 31 December 2009. For all the details, check out the challenge post.

Since most of the books I read in 2008 were by new-to-me authors, I have a huge list already! I'm only listing possibilities though and it's likely that I'll be adding to the list as other ideas come to me...

Completed: ALL 12/12 as of 30 December 2009

LOL! Yes, I think I am going to be super busy, but oh won't it be fun?

I can't resist - and I think I'm signing up for 99% of the ones you're hosting too! I love these challenges!

Joy at Thoughts of Joy takes the credit for most of them. She originally hosted this one and the 1st challenge - along with a few others. She decided to not host challenges this coming year and I took over the ones I'd planned on joining. I'd planned on 2009 to be my year of book challenges....and by the looks of it, the plan worked...lol!
