Library Reading Challenge for 2009

A reading challenge has been issued by book blogger, J. Kaye, with a twist.

The twist is to commit to reading a certain number of books from your library.

You can sign up here if you want to join in.

I really use my library a lot, reserving books online, renewing stuff online, downloading audio books, checking out movies, and cd's. The one in my town is really comfy and low-key and the building is beautiful. For the most part the librarians and staff that work there are super nice and fun to chat books with. I hope that your library is as accessible and well-stocked as mine is, it is impossible for me to imagine our country without free public libraries.

This will be a post that I edit and add the books in a list as I read them over 2009.

My goal is to read 50 books from the library in 2009.
