9 for ‘09 Challenge

9for9200x1164Looking for a fun way to whittle down the books on your TBR (To Be Read) List?  Jump on over to The 9 For ‘09 Challenge and pick a book for each of the 9 categories to finish and review this year. I know, I know… the year is half over, but there’s no crying in blogging and you know you’ll feel so much better getting just a few of those books crossed off your list.  Plus, Isabel put together a great site to make it so much fun.  And I hardly need mention…but do I send you anywhere without prizes?

Ooh and just in case you are curious as to my picks and want to follow my progress,  you can check out My List at Adventures in Thought.
