This one is straight-forward enough: simply pick twelve young adult books and read them at your own convenience during 2008.
I’ll probably edit my list as I go, especially considering that I don’t even know if one of the books I picked will actually be published before next year ends.
ETA (30 Dec ’07): The list is now set in stone and the twelve books on the list are the ones I’ll be reading for the challenge.
