2010 Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge

The second challenge that I will be joining this year is the 2010 Support Your Local Library Challenge. I love my local library, and love to support them in any way that I can. They offer me a commitment-free way to try a variety of new books and authors, and if I don't love the book, I can just return it! This challenge is hosted by J. Kaye of J.Kaye's Book Blog. The sign-up post for this challenge is here.

The rules:

1. Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate.

--Non-Bloggers: Post your list of books in the comment section of the wrap-up post. To learn how to sign up without having a blog, click here.

2. There are four levels:
--The Mini – Check out and read 25 library books.
--Just My Size – Check out and read 50 library books.
--Stepping It Up – Check out and read 75 library books.
--Super Size Me – Check out and read 100 library books.

(Aim high. As long as you read 25 by the end of 2010, you are a winner.)

3. Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, YA, Young Reader – any book as long as it is checked out from the library count. Checked out like with a library card, not purchased at a library sale.

4. 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.

5. Crossovers from other reading challenges count.

6. Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010.
