Read Your Own Books '09

Date: January 1st through December 31st of 2009
(However, I found out about it on March 16th, so my list will only include books read after this time.)

Host: MizB

For details: Click here.

The challenge (put simply): Read books you already own. Didn't take a brain surgeon to figure that one out, huh? You choose your own goal as to number of books. No need for a predetermined list.

Notes: My goal is 29. Decided to join this because a.) I seemingly am incapable of NOT joining a challenge, and b.) I'm hoping this nudges me to get some of my own books read.

2. The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents by Terry Pratchett
