2009 Support Your Local Library. What Bteer Thing Than A Good Book On A Winter's Evening?

Most of you know how much I love reading - and also how fond I have recently become of audio books. My Oh My - another fine example of why I no longer ever say I will never ...to anything !
I found this great support your local library post over on J.Kaye's blog. I am proud to be a member of our library's board. I can't imagine my world, or anyone else's for that matter, without the wonder of books. I truly feel that from a good book I can teach myself almost anything, that I can go on magical adventures without leaving home and that I am a better person because of the books I have been able to borrow from libraries throughout my life. I am especially proud that I once worked in a small library. I loved - the fell of the books, and each with it's own individual scent - what a fine place a library can be !

I have reprinted much of this directly from J.Kayes blog - and there really is a "Mr.Linky" where you can enter your name. I think that it would be a fine blog challenge for all of to borrow and review books form our local libraries. Think of the possibilities! Art books. Craft books.Sewing books. Biographies.History.Great novels both modern and vintage (Jane Austin anyone?). I'm personally going to "go for the gold"! I surely run through at least 50 books a year .. most likely quite a few more. I'll just post a review .... how 'bout you? Reading on a winter's night anyone?! Join me !

Here's the Deal (from J. Kaye's Book Blog):

Here are the challenge "levels::

** The first is to read 12 books from your local library in 2009.
