9 Books in 2009



This is a challenge to read 9 books in 2009 from 9 different, creative categories.
You can find the challenge post here.
The rules for each category are listed there, as well as how to post the reviews.

The categories are:

1. LONG
2. FREE
3. DUSTY
4. USED
5. LETTER
6. STRANGE
7. DISTANCE
8. ALIVE OR NOT
9. COVER

3 books can overlap with other challenges, while 6 must be new. The books not in other challenges have "original" beside them. My tentative selections are as follows:

1. LONG: Chief Modern Poets of England and America, 4th Edition (original) (June 2009)
2. FREE: A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini (Jan. 2009)
3. DUSTY: Fire of Love: Praying with St. Therese by James McCaffey (original) (July 2009)
4. USED: Imagist Poetry: An Anthology (original) (Feb. 2009)
5. LETTER: Evensong by Gail Godwin (original)
6. STRANGE: On the Couch by Alisa Kwitney (Feb. 2009)
7. DISTANCE: Notes from My Travels by Angelina Jolie (Jan. 2009)
8. ALIVE OR NOT: Possession by A.S. Byatt
