The 2009 Support Your Local Library Challenge




The 2009 Support Your Local Library Challenge hosted at J. Kaye's Book Blog.

You all know what a supporter of the library my family and I are. What better way to pay homage than by having a reading challenge in 2009? Since we are all different, there will be three sizes of challenges.

** 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 for my challenge I am going to get 25 books from the local library. I go to the library often but sometimes I read stuff from my own shelves. So I am going to go conservative. I just went to the library today so I will start off with those.

1. Hana's Suitcase - Karen Levine
2. The Hidden Children - Howard Greenfeld
3. Something Remains - Inge Barth-Grozinger
4. The Last of Something - Susan Kelly
5. The Night Country - Stewart O'Nan
6. I Want Candy - Kim Wong Keltner
7. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Mary Ann Shafer

10. The Good Wife - Stewart O'Nan
