2009 Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge



** 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.



So it is August, and I just found this challelnge, but no matter, as I read lots of library books. As of today, this year alone, I've read 22, so I will stick with the 25 books. That means only 3 more to read from the library this year. I think 50 is too much at this point, had I started earlier, I would have picked that one. Maybe next time.

Since I'm late to the game, I'll post a list of the library books that I have read, and any reviews.
