Completed November 2009!
Who loves libraries as much as I do?
Books, movies, and Chinese Food does; she pointed me to J. Kaye's challenge - read 12, 25, or 50 books from your local library this year! (Choose your own hardcore-ness)
Since I don't believe in paying for...well, anything, libraries are my best friend in the whole world. Yes, more than Selena. Just kidding, lesbro! (Can libraries be my Lesbook?)
I'm not sure I remember all the books I already got from the library this year, so if you remember me reading something not on the list, let me know. I will keep updating this list.
I'll be doing the 25 Library Books Challenge! (hey look, it's the reverse of 52!)
1) The Watchmenby Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons
2) Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
3) The Intimate Act Of Choreography by Lynne Anne Blom and L. Tarin Chaplin
4) Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale
5) Kampung Boy by Lat

the only book I ever took out of the library and then realized I'd already taken it out before
