Support Your Local Library 2010


I've decided to try the Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge again. You should J. Kaye's Book Blog and sign up too!

The Rules:
1. Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate.

2. There are four levels:
--The Mini – Check out and read 25 library books.
--Just My Size – Check out and read 50 library books.
--Stepping It Up – Check out and read 75 library books.
--Super Size Me – Check out and read 100 library books.

(Aim high. As long as you read 25 by the end of 2010, you are a winner.)

3. Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, YA, Young Reader – any book as long as it is checked out from the library counts. Checked out like with a library card, not purchased at a library sale.

4. No need to list your books in advance. You may select books as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed.

5. Crossovers from other reading challenges count.

6. Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010.


I was going to be a baby and just do the 25 but I decided to shoot for 50 and if I don't make it I'll just have to deal with it. It's not like I'm signing anything in blood here. So 50 it is.
