Final Challenge in 2008 - Triple 8 Challenge

Last but farthest from the least is the challenge that has giving me the most grief without even opening a book.

How is that possible you ask? Well, the rules of the challenge, although flexible, really didn't account for some anal, neurotic lady as myself. I have been going over these lists and adding books only to remove them or researching which books would meet the challenges rules... it was an interesting process and I still have a few categories with incomplete listings, just because I have no idea what to put down.
I finally just decided to post what I have and as the year progresses I will add the missing books... but I commit myself to not change the books in the lists I post today.

Anyway, the challenge is sponsored by 3M at the Triple8 Challenge website and Here are the rules:

1. Challenge runs from January 1 through December 31, 2008.
2. Choose 8 categories of your own that you would like to read 8 books EACH in.
3. You will be allowed 8 overlaps, for a total of 56 unique book titles.
4. You may overlap these 56 titles with any other challenge.
5. You may change your list or your categories at any time.
6. Post a comment here that you are participating, and I will add a link to the sidebar. Request an invite including your e-mail address if you want to post your list to this blog. However, we will NOT be writing reviews here! You may update your lists by providing the link to books read. Please use your name as a label, along with the book categories you're reading from.
7. Check back here to see who is participating and cheer others on.
8. Participants who complete all 56 books will be in the running for in-stock books from (I have mucho credits.) Overseas is okay!
9. Have fun reading!

I love that this challenge will make me pull out a lot of those books that have been sitting forever in my TBR pile.

I will add the lat few books missing on the lists as I run into them and I'll also post the links to those selections that have already been read.

Happy Reading in 2008!!!
