Read Your Own Books (RYOB) Challenge Complete

Another 2009 reading challenge bites the dust. The rules for the RYOB Challenge, hosted by MizB of MizB's Reading Challenges, were simple: Choose the number of books to read off of your own shelves between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2009 and then read them ;o). My goal was to read at least 50 of my own books in 2009. I'll get a few more in before the end of the year, but since I've reached my goal of 50 books I'm calling this challenge complete.
