It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

999 Challenge

I'm an idiot! I know I read a lot but why, WHY would I commit myself to this?

9 Categories
9 books from each category
Finished in 2009

That's 81 books! Not just 81 books, but from specific categories! Luckily, 9 books can overlap another category and I do have other challenges where the books will fit.

sigh, Sign-ups are here and the blog is here.

I still need to narrow down my categories:

1-8: I've chosen my categories:

Thought about but decided against.
Paranormal, book challenge books, travel, Bestsellers, other, miscellaneous

7-5: This is a LibraryThing challenge and I forgot the "For an added challenge, try completing your books by 9/9/09!" Good thing it is just an additional challenge!
