Support Your Local Library Challenge


This is the second reading challenge I've finished this year. I was actually surprised how much I started using the library again. I read more library books than I'm listing here, but these are all ones that I picked up from just browsing the shelves (plus a few sequels they led me to) or looked for because someone recommended them to me. They don't include books I picked up for other reading challenges. After this I'm going to have to focus on reading off my own shelves again! I feel those patiently waiting books have been neglected...

Here's the twenty-five books I read for this challenge:

The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill by Mark Bittner
Tell Me Where it Hurts by Nick Trout
The Character of Cats by Stephen Budiansky
Mammoth by Richard Stone
The Truth About Dogs by Stephen Budiansky
A Lion Called Christian by Bourke and Rendall
The World According to Horses by Stephen Budiansky
Flyaway by Suzie Gilbert
The Girl Who Married a Lion by Alexander McCall Smith
Sea Turtles of the World by Doug Perrine
Winter's Tail by the Hatkoffs
Dewey by Vicki Myron
The Arrival by Shaun Tan
Wally's World by Marsha Boulton
The Wild Trees by Richard Preston
How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell
A Naturalist and Other Beasts by George Schaller
How to Be a Pirate by Cressida Cowell
How Animals Work by David Burnie
The Lion's Eye by Joanna Greenfield
Dog Boy by Eva Hornung
Tigerland by Eric Dinerstein
Shark Trouble by Peter Benchley
Plenitude by Juliet Schor
The Natural History Museum of Dinosaurs by Tim Gardom and Angela Milner

Can you tell which section of the library I've been frequenting? ha

Very cool. I can see which authors you were drawn to!

This would be a good challenge for me to consider -- we get most of our books from the library these days.
