Reading Challenge: Borrowed Book Challenge



I am all for libraries and the world-wide phenomena of libraries disappearing because of people not interested in borrowing books any longer worries me a great deal. So when I cam across this wonderful challenge hosted by Book'd Out, I simply had to join it. And the Challenge Badge looks good too :).

However, since half the year is almost gone, I will be Borrower Be that means I need to borrow, read and return at least 12 books.

If you too want to support libraries, register yourself for this challenge. Further details can be found over here:
