2011 Library Challenge

2011 library challenge

Since I am a huge supporter and user of my local library, I am once again participating in the Library Challenge. Last year, I read 120 library books (not counting picture books that I borrowed for use in my classroom.) This year, I’m going for 100 again. This challenge is sponsored by Home Girl’s Book Blog.

Here are the rules:

1. The goal is to read 12, 25, 50, or 100 books from your local library. Anyone can join. You don’t need a blog to participate. Non-Bloggers: Post your list of books in the comment section of the Post Your Reviews post.

2. Any book from your local library counts.

3. No need to list your books in advance. You may select books as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed.

4. Crossovers from other reading challenges count.

5. Challenge begins January 1st and continues through the end of December, 2011.
