The 2009 Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge COMPLETE

I'm really excited about this challenge as I get most of my books from the library. I am going to sign up for the middle challenge of 25 books as last year I only managed to read 55 books total and I know some of them were not from the library.

I am also planning on purchasing a Kindle come tax rebate time, (Come on, February! Can't wait!) so I figure my library reading will drop a bit, but hopefully not too much.
