I officially completed J. Kaye's Support Your Local Library Challenge. There were three levels of commitment and I thought I had signed up to read 25 library books in 2009. Just now when I was linking to the sign-up post, I see that I actually committed to only 12 books! So I guess I finished the challenge a while back and I'm an over-achiever.

This was an excellent batch of books. Not everything here was rated A or B, but there was only one book that completely didn't work for me (A Kiss of Shadows). Wicked Lovely and The Forest of Hands and Teeth are two of the best audio productions I've ever listened to, and Willow is the book that I'm currently hand-selling.
Thanks to J. Kaye for hosting this terrific challenge.
I love my library and will continue to use it and support it. How about you? Do you visit your library on a regular basis?
