Support Your Local Library Challenge

Yet another challenge that will just happen anyway, so I might as well make it official. In this one, you commit to reading 12, 25 or 50 books from the library. For complete info and to sign up, click HERE. My choice is 25.
Here's where I'll keep track:

1. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
2. How to Take the Ex out of Ex-Boyfriend by Janette Rallison
3. The Wednesday Letters by Jason Wright
4.Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson
5. Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin
6. The Dead and the Gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer
7. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
8. Agnes Grey by Ann Bronte
9. The Monster in Me by Mette Ivie Harrison
10. Blue Noon by Scott Westerfeld
11. Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
12.Beastly by Alex Flinn
13. And Only to Deceive by Tasha Alexander
14. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart


  1. Okay. These all look very cool. And I don't mind direction. But what is the deal - you sign up and... I look at your list of book blogs and just feel too overwhelmed to read any of them. What really is this whole book-blogging thing. I think I could be interested...I pretty sure I'm qualified...but there's "the mountain is too big to start climbing" thing...and the commitment thing... Spill the beans Kerri!

  2. Ha! You crack me up! Of course you are qualified to be an official book blogger! You don't have to do the challenges, that's all just for fun. BUT... ummm.... I'm not really sure what it means to be an official book blogger. I think it just means you blog about the books you read. You review them and let us all know what you think. Once you start doing that, THEN you get sucked into this amazing community... which then makes you want to participate in all the challenges and the projects and on and on. Is that enough beans spilled? If you think my list is overwhelming... I promise you, it's just a drop in the bucket compared to what many others out there are doing.

  3. Hey! Wanted to stop by and welcome you to this challenge as well. These things have become a bit addictive for me. ;)

  4. What! I just start bothering to review the books I read and it will all just happen. That's almost a fatalistic attitude. I don't know if I believe you. Don't I have to be more proactive? Put out a little more effort? Like actively reading and commenting (gasp - introductions) on that olypmic list of book blogs? Like joining challenges?

    Sad news: I don't know Brandon Sanderson's wife. I finally saw a family picture. He must have dumped the girl I know and married her. The nerve!

  5. I plan to start supporting my library this year. I haven't stepped foot in mine for years, so I applied for a library card. They told me that I already have one. I explained that my wallet got stolen years ago with my library card inside... The adventure continues and I still don't have a library card!
