9 paranormal books in 9 different categories, all read in 2009. For an added challenge, try completing your books by 9/9/09! This group is to help you track your progress on the Paranormal 999 challenge
I think I want to try this, anyone else? I don't do library thing so I figured we can have a post to keep track of it here. Here are the categories I will be doing

I'm in, now I've just gotta go through my books and see what fits in the categories! I'm glad I've been dragging my feet on reading some of my paranormals!

I'm going to give this a go next year as well, but have my doubts that I will be able to make it. The thing for me is my book buying habit has been significantly impacted by my household's present economy. In past years, I could, and did, buy at will, this would have been a sure win. Now, I have to really budget, and book buying, sadly, is an expendable luxury (it's even harder to find paranormals at our local library, which never had a large selection to begin with, but now seems to have an even poorer selection). If I am able accomplish this goal, this will be a really telling and wonderful sign that things are getting better for us financially.
I am not buying many books either. the library and here are my big sources. Hubby did tell me if things don't pick up at work I may have to decrease my mailing budget though.
I never know what I am going to read until I get into it. I need to go through my books and see what I have, but I don't have many in my tbr pile, maybe 20 or so. I will just have to see what I pick up and along about June see what I need to search for more books on.
