Count-down Challenge

This is the main link for this challenge

You select from the following categories and decide how many - in descending order - and which ones you want to read the most, in which order, over the next year.

EXAMPLE: You decide to start at 12. You choose Group Reads, and read twelve books. Then Group Member Authors, and read eleven. Then Continuing SEries, and listen to ten. On down the list to one. You do NOT have to read only one category in one month, you can space them out, pick and choose.

If you choose 12 books, this would be 78 books over the next year, if you go all the way down to 1, but you can choose 5 down to 1, which would be 15. Or 10 down to 5, which would be 45 books.

Each book can only be counted once in the challenge

Post as you go, or commit to them all now.
