Dewey's Book Reading Challenge (medium)

Dewey's Book Reading Challenge is about honoring Dewey, the prolific and much loved book blogger after her passing in late November 2008. The idea is simple: pick one book from each of the years she reviewed books, read it and then post a review of it here. To make this an easier process, I went through and made a list of all the books I could find reviews of in her blog The Hidden Side of a Leaf. Below is the cut to the list with the titles linked to their respective blog posts.
