Support Your Local Library Challenge

The Support You Local Library Challenge is hosted by J. Kaye's Book Blog.

There are three sizes to the 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.

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.

I have decided to go with the second choice and try for 25 books. And since I'm starting late in the year I'm going to list the books I have already read this year.
