Countdown Challenge

Michelle, from 1morechapter, is hosting the Countdown Challenge. The rules are simple:

For each year 2001-2009, you read the number of books in the last digit for that year. For example, read 9 books that are published in 2009, 8 books published in 2008, 7 books published in 2007, etc. The best part is this challenge is retroactive. You can count books that you read after August 8, 2008. The challenge ends on September 9, 2009.
