Challenge Complete: Library Books Reading Challenge

Even though my goal for 2013 is to read primarily from my own TBR stacks, I do love the library and I did sign up for a few challenges that are going to require some library check-outs.  My husband and I stop by the library once a week on our lunch hour and then again on Saturday--and there are times that I just can't resist the chanting of the books over on the "New Releases" shelves...particularly the new mysteries.  I also want to support my local library as much as I can.  That's why I signed up for the Library Books Reading Challenge hosted by Book Dragon's Lair.  Reviews were not necessary, but I do them for all my reads, so you will find links to all the library books read for the challenge below.

I signed up for the Middle Grades level which required me to read 18 books borrowed from libraries. I threw in one more for good measure....

1. A Dark & Stormy Night by Jeanne M. Dams (1/4/13) 
2. The Evil That Men Do by Jeanne M. Dams (1/11/13)

wow, already? Good job!

The Man in the Empty Suit sounds interesting and I've got Ready Player One on it's way from my library.
