Complete: My last challenge of 2009



This one was my trickiest challenge to complete. The key is in selecting your categories carefully. There are only 81 books in the challenge and I've read 186 so far this year but a lot of what I read didn't fit in my categories.

I missed the bonus deadline of completing the challenge by 9/9/09 but I still feel pretty good for completing 6 challenges in 2009 when it was my first year joining any challenges.
