2010 Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge

OK, since I didn't "promise" I wouldn't be joining any more challenges this year, I feel slightly less guilty about joining this one - especially since I can't seem to leave the library without an armload of books! I'm aiming low for this one, but fully expect to step up another notch or two. The rules are - if you read a book you've checked out from the library, then it counts for this challenge! Also, crossovers from other challenges count! :) This is being hosted by the amazing J. Kaye over here. You should really check out J. Kaye's Book Blog by the way, it's wonderful!

I'll be doing the "Mini" version, reading 25 library books.

***UPDATE*** As of March, I'll be doing the "Just My Size" version, reading 50 library books. I can hardly believe it myself!!!
