Bree (coffeebeanbookshelf) **This challenge was originally created by Shelleyrae at Book'd Out**

Supporting local libraries is essential as closures and amalgamations become ever more frequent and this challenge is designed to encourage you to use their services in the next year. It should be easily combined with any other challenges you might be participating in for 2011 and if you don’t have access to a library you are also permitted to borrow from friends or family.

How it works:

* The challenge will run for 1 year from your start date

* Read a book that you have BORROWED each month. Books (including eBooks & Audiobooks) can be borrowed from the library, a friend or family member but must be borrowed, read and returned to the owner within the year. Choose a goal from the four options below:

Borrower Be: Borrow, read and return 12 books
Stacked: Borrow, read and return 24 books
Book Envy: Borrow, read and return 36 books
Library Lust: Borrow, read and return 48 books

* You can nominate your reads in advance or as you go. Feel free to combine this challenge with any other challenges you may be participating in!
