J.Kaye's Book Blog is hosting the "Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge" She's is a big supporter of the library and what better way to encourage others than by having a challenge like this.

The rules are simple. Just read books checked out from your local library. They can be any kind of books including audio, downloads, children's, and YA. The challenge runs from 1/1/09 to 12/31/09.

There are three levels of challenges:

1. Read 12 books from your local library.
2. Read 25 books from your local library.
3. Read 50 books from your local library.

The only stipulation is that they HAVE to be read in 2009. You can join anytime. The other thing is that you have to choose which level you are going to complete when you join.

I am a frequent library user, so I think I can handle the 25 book challenge. I will list my books as I go-

1. Academy 7 by Anne Osterlund
2. Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris
3. The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod: eighth grade bites by Heather Brewer
4. Ghost Huntress. Book 1. The Awakening by Marley Gibson.
5. Once Dead, Twice Shy by Kim Harrison
6. Vacations from Hell, by Libba Bray, etal.
7. Switch by Carol Snow
8. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau- Banks by E. Lockhard.
9. The Alchemyst by Michael Scott
10. The Magician by Michael Scott
11. Stray by Rachel Vincent
12. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
13. City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
14. City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare
15. The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan
