Support Your Local Library Challenge 2010

I am going to participate in J. Kaye's Support Your Local Library Challenge again in 2010. My goal will be 50 books, because I surpassed my goal of 25 for 2009. I'm a little concerned that I won't make it because I am getting so many ARCs from publishers, but going for 25 would be undershooting.

If you'd like to participate in the Local Library Challenge, the guidelines are pretty easy. It can be any genre or book format, as long as it gets checked out of the library.
I'll list the books I finish here as I read them, and link to any reviews that I write.

I love the library. I'm there at least once a week. I wish I had more time to read though. I mostly get books for my daughter & magazines for me.
