Dewey's Books Reading Challenge

Click here for the main page.
There are two ways to join this challenge:

1. Pick one book from each of the 6 years that Dewey has archives of. You can access her archives by clicking on the archive link in the sidebar of her website. It’s a dropdown menu. For instance, you would read one book that she reviewed in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008 for a total of six books.

2. The other option is to read 5 books that Dewey reviewed. These can be from any year and I’m guessing that each of us has at least 5 books on our TBR list because of Dewey!

And the rules:

1. Choose either option 1 or 2 from above.

2. Commit to read your books (either 5 or 6 depending on which option you choose) throughout 2009. The challenge will end on December 31, 2009 but we’ll go ahead and unofficially start it right away! We’ll officially start it on January 1st, 2009.

3. Check back to the challenge blog that we’ve created, Dewey’s Books, often as I’ll put up Mr. Linky’s for reviews and I’ll mention prize giveaways!
I'm going for option 1. My pool of picks so far:
2003: The Corrections
Everything is Illuminated
2004: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time
2005: The Birth of Venus
2006: Outlander
The Misfits
The Kite Runner
Madame Bovary
Lord Vishnu's Love Handles
2007: Einstein's Dreams
Ice Haven
It's Like This, Cat
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
