Support Your Local Library Challenge

This looks fun and easy! J. Kaye at J. Kaye’s Book Blog is hosting this challenge, wherein you read books from the library. Simple, yes? The challenge is for 2009, so I can’t start counting all of the library books I have right now, but as soon as New Year’s rolls around I’ll be keeping track of the ones I’ve read at this post. I’m going to commit to 50 books since that’s about how many I expect to read next year and I tend to get my books from the library anyway.
