Goal set for reading all of the children's picture books in our library:
Monday, September 28, 2009. I'm officially a year in now, and am much further behind than I EVER anticipated being! I somehow didn't factor in the following things:
- We added a second child to our family. There was a period of adjustment which did not involve going to the library for awhile.
- Summer. My husband and I are also wedding photographers and are therefore somewhat-to-extremely busy between June and August! The library doesn't factor in very well then.
- We are now expecting our third child and morning sickness refuses to let me go anywhere - least of all to the library!
Over the course of the past year I've learned to make this more of a fun challenge than my originally intention of a challenge challenge. This has to fit into life. I cannot force life into it. It's good to realize that and I'm happy (now) plugging along at a slower pace than I had originally set for myself.
Progress as of today's date:
I've read (according to the last name of the author) through the "A" section and am into the "Br" section.
Total number of picture books read:

Average number of books checked out per visit:
I lost count of how many actual visits I've made to the library to collect books. However, I typically walk away with anywhere from 25-27 titles. (That's how many comfortably fit into the bag and allow me to juggle two toddlers at the same time without breaking my back.)
Favorite New-to-Me author I've discovered so far:

Total amount of fines due so far:
