Support Your Local Library Book Challenge

This should be a very easy challenge for me as I get most of my books from my local library! This year over 60% of the books I read came from my library! Another good chunk of the books I read came from friends I mooched them off of! I buy a ridiculous amount of Children’s Books so I try not to buy book for myself to read since I usually just read them once. 
So, with that in mind I’m going for the “Just My Size” Level and will plan to read 50 library books this year – in 2009 I read 44, so 50 shouldn’t be too hard!

I also think this is a great idea. I'd like to make a challenge myself but since I only have 4 months left, it will have to be something like, 25 or so books. Hope you don't mind that I'm going to do your challenge too!
