Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

80s Books Reading Challenge

80s Books Reading Challenge

Spending most of the 80s in college and not having time to read much fiction, I find that I have a lot of books published in the 80s on my TBR pile. I didn't stop buying books even though I had no time to read them. Nothing like a challenge as an incentive to read books that have been on the TBR pile for decades!

Read 5, 10, 15 or 20 books published from 1980 - 1989 from any genre. Write a review of your favorite, and as always, comments are welcome in the forum.

Challenge Details
Genre: Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror
