Kitten's 2009 Support Your Local Library Challenge

This will be the last reading challenge I sign up for this year. (Famous last words, I know). Here's the link to J. Kaye's for all of the rules.

For this one, you can choose to read any 12, 25, or 50 books from your local library. I'm going with 25. There are still a lot of books on my bookshelf that I'd like to read, and with this economy, I need to be frugal about my book purchases!

Not to mention, my town has one kick-ass, amazing, award-winning library.

And, like the other three challenges, you can keep up with me via the button on the sidebar.

Here's the list so far (updated July 31, 2009):

1. Tarzan's Tonsillitis, by Alfredo Bryce-Echenique
2. The Pillars of the Earth, by Ken Follett
3. Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street, by Michael Davis
4. The Middle Place, by Kelly Corrigan
5. Mrs. 'Arris Goes to Paris, by Paul Gallico
6. Mrs. 'Arris Goes to New York, by Paul Gallico

I'm definitely a library borrower! I only buy the book if my library system doesn't have in (usually cuz it's brand new).
