The Century Challenge

BA's Century Challenge

This challenge is being hosted by Bookish Ardour at BA Reading Challenges.  I figured that it overlapped the 1001 Books Challenge, so it wouldn't hurt to include it. 

How The Challenge Works

The books you’ll select will be decided by publication year and have to be read in order from the time period you choose.
Challenge Levels

Decade Challenge – Choose a time period of one decade with 10 books to read
Quarter of a Century – Choose a time period of 25 years with 25 books to read
Half a Century – Choose a time period of 50 years with 50 books to read
Three Quarters – Choose a time period of 75 years with 75 books to read
A Century – Choose a time a time period of 100 years with 100 books to read

For extra hard challenges:
One and a Half – Choose a time period of 150 years with 150 books to read
Two Centuries – Choose a time period of 200 years with 200 books to read

I think I am going to try for the Quarter of a Century challenge.  I am going to start my 25 years from when I graduated high school and go forward - so 1984 - 2009.  (This will also fit in nicely with another challenge that I am thinking about doing.)
