My First Reading Challenge

My first reading challenge will be Decade Challenge 2008. I hope I will be able to complete this challenge. My 11 year old daughter is also going to participate as well . As we were going through the list we found some books appropriate for her.

The rules are simple:
1. Read a minimum of 8 books in 8 consecutive decades in ‘08.
2. Books published in the 2000’s do not count.
3. Titles may be cross-posted with any other challenge.
4. You may change your list at any time
