999 Challenge

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.

This group is to help you track your progress on the 999 challenge - 9 books in 9 different categories, all read in 2009. For an added challenge, try completing your books by 9/9/09! You pick the categories yourself, just post here and let us know how you're doing.

If you are interested, VictoriaPL organized a group blog. And you might want to tag your books "999 Challenge" so we can see what everyone is reading.

NEXT YEAR'S CHALLENGE

I have started a 1010 challenge at http://www.librarything.com/groups/1010challenge. If you want to start a different challenge, tell me what it is and I will post it here too so people can find out about it. I'm so excited for next year! Thanks to everyone who participated on this challenge. It was so much fun, and the community here was a big part of why it was fun.
