Since the browser in which I do most of my blogging has been crashing on me every time I enter it, I’ve taken the opportunity to catch up on some of my reading. I’ve even joined GoodReads, to help organize what I’m reading and I’ve read. It’s while updating my current reading status that I stumbled across some reading challenges. One particular challenge I happen to be doing already (didn’t know it was a challenge!). Since it’s not too late to join, according to the web site, I am with this post.
The Challenge: Support Your Local Library Book Challenge 2009
What to do? [be the first to] Read 12, 25, or 50 books [from the library].
I’ve chosen: 50 books (because I’m nearing the halfway point already ~grin~)
Date of challenge: All of 2009 (to Dec. 31st)
Of course, because I’m joining late, I don’t really expect to win, but I’m still playing, for it’s a good cause, anyway. And, like I’ve said, I’m already reading via my library card. 😀
