Anyone who knows me or reads this blog probably knows I am just a teeny tiny bit of a library addict. I often visit two different libraries a week and then there is the library across the street that I can pop into at anytime. When I saw this challenge I thought it was pretty much a no brainer that I should join. I'd say about 90% of the books I read come from the library so I'll be signing up to read 50 books from my local library(s).
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) The goal is to read 12, 25, or 50 books checked out from your local library in 2009.
5) These can be audios, downloads, children’s, YA. As long as it’s a book, format and target age group does not matter.
