It's the End of the World (as we know it) Challenge

I missed this last year, but will give it a try this time around, since I like the 'end of the world' theme. Gloomy, eh?

The goal is to read at least 4 books between 10 March and 9 October 2009. For all info, check out the original post and Becky's blog.

Read Alas, Babylon. I keep looking at that one in stores, so I want to know if it's good. :-)

Loved The Handmaid's Tale! I did this challenge last year and enjoyed it--hope you enjoy your reading!

What a cool challenge. The only book I've read from your list is The Handmaid's Tale and that is a fantastic novel. I hope you'll enjoy it. Have fun with the gloom & doom books :)
