Support Your Local Library Challenge

Since we are all different, there will be three sizes of challenges.

** The first is to read 12 books from your local library in 2009.
** The second is to read 25 books from your local library in 2009.
** The third is to read 50 books from your local library in 2009.

You decide which one of the three challenges is best for you.

Here are the guidelines:

1) You can join anytime as long as you don’t start reading your books prior to 2009.
2) This challenge is for 2009 only. The last day to have all your books read is December 31, 2009.
3) You can join anytime between now and December 31, 2009.
4) Our goal is to read 12, 25, or 50 books checkout from our local library in 2009. Please decide which when you sign up and don’t change it.
5) These can be audios, downloads, children’s, YA. As long as it’s a book, format and target age group does not matter.



Seeing as I get most of my books from the library, I was going to go for the big 50 challenge ... but I promised myself that I'd read a lot of books from my own shelf next year. 25 it is.

Blankets is sooooo good!

I bought City of Ember, but I had to put it aside so I can get cracking on my library challenge!

Met you through Mr. Linky on J. Kaye's page :)
