The goal of this challenge was to read either 5 of 6 books reviewed by our greatly missed friend, Dewey. If you chose 6 books, you were to pick one book from each of the 6 years that Dewey has archives of. If you chose 5 books, they could be from any year.
I am apparently what my son would call a moron-athon, because I chose to read 6 but paid no attention to the years -- so I guess I effectively chose the 5-book option with one extra. Anyway, the books I read were:
Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer -- completed 5/10/09; review here
The Book That Changed My Life: 71 Remarkable Writers Celebrate the Books That Matter Most to Them by Roxanne Coady and Joy Johannessen -- completed 2/13/09; review here
The Complete Maus by Art Spiegelman -- completed 4/24/09; review here
The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince) by Antoine de St.-Exupéry -- completed 4/18/09; review here
Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar...: Understanding Philosophy Through Jokes by Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein -- completed 5/1/09; review here
The Uncommon Reader: A Novella by Alan Bennett -- completed 5/8/09; review here
If you follow this blog, you'll notice that I'm also doing the 999 Challenge and that one of my categories for that is Dewey's Books. For that challenge, I need to read 9 books from my Dewey list. Since not all of the books listed here are cross-referenced there, I'll end up with more than 9 Dewey books total between them. So if you're interested in other books that Dewey read, check back and see what books I come up with for the 999.
