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.

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.
