I started this challenge as a personal one, but some have expressed interest in joining me, so I would be delighted to be the hostess for it. It really is meant to just "work in" with your other challenges.

My goal is to read 15 books published in 15 consecutive decades in 2007. You don't have to choose that many books, though! In fact, my original goal was 10 books in 10 consecutive decades, but I realized my 2007 TBR list made it easy for me to go ahead and do 15.

1. First, there will be a prize--a book of your choosing from Amazon.com that is priced $15.00 or less. Only one prize will be given.

2. You may choose the number of books you read. If you read 4 books in 4 consecutive decades, you will have 4 chances for the prize. If you're really ambitious and read 18 books in 18 consecutive decades, you will have 18 chances for the prize. Books may be read in any order!

3. Books read for other challenges are totally acceptable. Almost all of mine are cross-posted with other challenges.

4. This is meant to be a fun challenge. Most of us are reading fools and have so many challenges going on. Don't let this one stress you out. Most could probably muster up at least 3 or 4 books for it without even trying.

5. The challenge lasts from January 1 through December 31 of 2007. Any book you've read this year will count for the challenge. However, you must sign up for it by midnight ET on June 30, 2007. If you're later than that you can still participate, but you won't be eligible for the prize. To sign up, go here: http://15books15decades.blogspot.com/

A good source to find out when books were published is wikipedia. For example if you follow this link, you will see how it is easy to search for titles in a particular decade

My list for this challenge is here.

Have fun reading!
