library_dueA fellow book blogger has issued a challenge for 2009, but since we’re joining the challenge late in the year, HBB will only sign up to read and post about 25 books from the public library. You can see the specifics of the challenge here at J Kaye’s Book Blog.

HBB will have from now until December 31st 2009 to check out, read and review 25 books from a Hawaii public library. That’s about a book a week in addition to our normal posts. Once we’ve finished a book, we’ll edit this post with a running list of what’s been read so far! I encourage all of our followers to do the same. Can you meet the challenge? 25 books by the end of the year?
