2009 READING CHALLENGES

The goal here is to read the number of books first published in each year that corresponds to the last digit of each year in the 2000s —
9 books from 2009,
8 books from 2008, etc.
The total number of books required, therefore, is 45. Luckily, this challenge allows crossovers with other challenges, so you can bet I’m going to be checking publish dates on everything I read next year!
