Welcome to my Dewey Lunatic Project

What is the Dewey Lunatic Challenge? The goal is to read one book from every Dewey Decimal number: a truly daunting (and likely lifelong) task! I heard about this a while back from the World’s Strongest Librarian’s blog. So taken was I with the idea of reading outside of my comfort zone that I committed in the fall of 2011. I need to read more books about new things. The problem is that I keep reading books that don’t count: the only books listed here are the one book for each number/letter. So, don’t think I’m lazy–I read a lot. Really! But only those that are on a “new” subject get listed below.

Obviously I still have a LONG way to go. Have a recommendation? Suggest a book to me on Goodreads or Twitter @mtbeekeeper.

Dewey Lunatic Biographies

The issue with biographies by letter is that it is hard to find people with certain letters, so I plan to be liberal with the use of a first or last name of that letter. Also, I have noticed that many biographies are written for younger audiences and, again, to ease my pain in actually finding interesting biographies for this part, I will count biographies for younger audiences if they are over 100 pages. That seems fair, right?
