Rescue Those Books Challenge 2009

The goal of this challenge is to rescue books that have been sitting unread on your bookshelves for far too long and release/trade/RABCK them. There's also a second goal, which is to challenge yourself to read a set number of those books before setting them free. The challenge ends on 31 December 2009.

**********

My list of books to rescue:

All these books have sat on my shelves (actual shelves, not BC shelves) for years. My aim is to read at least four of these before releasing them.

  1. I'm very satisfied with myself :) I managed to read six and a half of these books and release all but one, which I'm still wanting to read before I let it go.
