What better way to pay homage than by having a reading challenge in 2009? Since we are all different, there will be three sizes of challenges.

  • The first is to read 12 books from your local library in 2009.
  • The second is to read 25 books from your local library in 2009.
  • The third is to read 50 books from your local library in 2009.

You decide which one of the three challenges is best for you. My goal is 25 books.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.

    The only challenge I do is to try to read 50 books in a year – I only managed about half of that last year but it was good to learn exactly how many I do read. But I could easily complete this challenge as 90% of the books I read come from my local library. I was raised with libraries so they are dear to my heart.

    Thank you both, I am very honored. You both have great blogs. I made a post about the awards and put the awards in my side bar. I want to be careful about who I award so I am giving it serious thought. I also really want to write my review about the Nine Days Queen.
