ROR Summer Reading Challenge

YIKES! I'm getting a very late start of this, which means I'll probably not finish all 15, but I'll give it a good try:)

Summer 09 Challenge FAQ’s June 1 - August 30

1. Select ANY number of books to read that fit the category. (I changed this rule from 5, 10, or 15 books!)
2. Post your list on the discussion board and blog (Name’s Summer Challenge List)
3. If you need title suggestions please use the Discussion titled SUMMER TITLE SUGGESTIONS if you don't see it please search (to try and minimize number of discussions)
4. Once you have read a book please find the corresponding discussion by searching you can search by 09 Summer # and use the number that corresponds with the list. (one will be created for each number on June 1, again, to try and minimize number of discussions) and post the book and title you read and rating, and review.
5. It is not required, but if you could post your review on the blog that would be great.
6. Reviews on the blog please include labels list the rating, author, and # of challenge only.
