Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge

Time is running out in 2009, so I need to post a few more reading challenges I've decided to participate in!

This one is the Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge, hosted by J. Kaye's Book Blog. Here's how she explains it:

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

--Non-Bloggers: Post your list of books in the comment section of the wrap-up post. To learn how to sign up without having a blog, click here.

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 count. 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 really need to work on my piles of owned and unread books, but I know I'll still be hitting the library. I'm going to keep my goal small though, and only aim for The Mini challenge--25 library books read in one year.

If you'd like to participate, sign up on J. Kaye's page. I'd also like to know if you're participating! Good luck!
