Update on Support Your Local Library Challenge

Okay, so if you remember, I took on a couple of challenges regarding my reading habits as New Year's Resolutions. I decided to keep better track of the actual books I read in 2009. And I decided to join the Support Your Local Library Challenge as well.

It's been way too long since I updated my efforts, so I wanted to give a report. I have been tracking the books I've read (even though I haven't been posting them here). I will try to post a list when I figure out how to easily export it from the database I've been using to track them.

The main purpose of this post is to update the status of my Support Your Local Library Challenge. I've discovered that my local libraries are pretty small and have limited hours (out of the 3, none are open on Sundays). I have made a few trips and read some books, though! After browsing the adult section, I was drawn to the juvenile section, so a lot of these are more young adult/juvenile fiction books. Here's my updated list:

1. The Billionaire Next Door by Jessica Bird
2. Mouth to Mouth by Erin McCarthy
3. 7 x 9 = Trouble! by Claudia Mills
4. Out of Order by Betty Hicks

I'm not quite half-way there, but hopefully over the summer months I can catch up!
