Read Your Own Books (RYOB) 2009 Challenge

This one will be great because it will overlap with much of my A-Z list.

The rules for this challenge are very simple…
* set a goal for how many of your OWN books you’d like to read in 2009
* read from your own collection between January 1st and December 31st, 2009
And, that’s basically it! You don’t have to create a list beforehand (’cause we all know that our reading preferences change as the year progresses), and you can even read books that come into your possession (that will be yours to keep) during the year!
Some other helpful hints…
- you CAN overlap with other challenges
- eBooks and Audiobooks count AS LONG AS they are from your own collection

I have lots of unread books on my shelves. My goal will be to read 20 books that I already own this year. I will list them on this post.

2. First Test by Tamora Pierce
