Support Your Local Library




These books, of course, must come from your local library - since I frequent our library quite often, this should be an easy one! I am going to go for 50. I have decided to keep a second list also - of children's books that I read to my son this year from the library - it will be at the bottom in Green!


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) When you sign up under Mr. Linky, list the direct link to your post where your library books will be listed. If you list just your blog’s URL, it will be removed. If you don’t have a blog, leave the URL blank. You should do this on the host's webpage here.


5) 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.


6) These can be audios, downloads, children’s, YA. As long as it’s a book, format and target age group does not matter.
