The 2009 Support Your Local Library Challenge



January 1 - December 31, 2009

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.


Here are the rules:

  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.
  4. When you sign up under Mr. Linky, list the direct link to your post where your library books will be listed. If you list just your blog’s URL, it will be removed. If you don’t have a blog, leave the URL blank.
  5. Our goal is to read 12, 25, or 50 books checkout from our local library in 2009. Please decide which when you sign up and don’t change it.
  6. These can be audios, downloads, children’s, YA. As long as it’s a book, format and target age group does not matter.
  7. Feel free to post a link to your reviews in the comment section. That way, we can visit your blog and read your review.

My local library is being remodeled and I think it has audio books. One of the reasons I quit the blog wa because I don't quite understand all the techy lingo. What am I suppose to do? I guess I need to wait for one of the daughters to stop by...
