Sounds damn interesting and fun! I would love to do this along with the OT ’09 Challenge, but for my time constraints. 😦

I guess I’ll not join in the challenge as such, but do the reading without the time frame attached to it. πŸ™‚ So, I’ll be starting on this soon! You wanna join the club?

  1. Looks a nice challenge. Just two things are serious impediments for me – time and the money I’ve to spend in getting the books suitable for the above catgories 😦


  2. Wow! That sounds very interesting…but I’ll take your lead too and just pick the suggestions without a time frame…would love to expand the reading range to all that!
