book club for one: 2009 Support Your Local Library Challenge

I love my local library. Not only do I get to go into a beautiful building each time I want to check out a book, but I have access to millions of resources for FREE.

I've started following a blog called Novel Challenges, that really is designed for people who are goal-oriented and like to read A LOT. I finally spotted a challenge that sounds doable for me, so I'm signing up and will post my books in this post and on this blog throughout 2009.

The challenge, run by J. Kaye's Book Blog, is to pick a number of books that you will read from your local library in 2009. I'm going to undershoot here and say that I will read 12 books from the Milwaukee Public Library in 2009. One a month is totally feasible.

Are you up for a similar challenge?

My Books:
  1. Rabbit, Run by John Updike
  1. A Map of Home by Randa Jarrar
  2. Tell My Horse: Voodoo and Life in Haiti and Jamaica by Zora Neale Hurston


  1. I love the library. You can borrow books and videos and DVDs and CDs… it’s glorious!

  2. Greetings! Just wanted to drop by and officially welcome you to the challenge. I am so glad you decided to join us!!


Thank you for stopping by The Accidental Wisconsinite. Your feedback is welcome, but please be civilized. Remember, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all!
