Support Your Local Library Challenge Complete

This year, J. Kaye of J. Kaye's Book Blog hosted a challenge to read library books. I have a ton of books on my shelves, but that doesn't prevent me from going to the library at least every other week or so and getting more, so I joined the challenge. I chose the middle level and set a goal to read 25 library books between 1/1/09 and 12/31/09. Although I'm sure I'll read more library books before the end of the year, I've read 25 so I'm calling this challenge complete.

Here are the 25 library books I've read. I bold, purple ones were my favorites:
  1. Dewey: The Small-Town Cat Who Touched the World by Vicki Myron with Bret Witter
  2. Plum Spooky by Janet Evanovich
  3. The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner

I haven't joined any challenges in 2009 because I over-challenged last year. I remember that good feeling of completing a challenge. Congrats to you for finishing this one. It's so fun to cross off the titles as you go, isn't it?
