I LOVE the Library and I especially LOVE the Library Challenges that have been hosted in the past by the Book Dragon’s Lair (I Love Libraries), which Bea’s Book Nook took over in 2016. Then in 2015 and past years there was (Snagged @ The Library Reading Challenge) hosted by The Book Nympho & Geeky Bloggers Book Blog.
This year my co-host Bea’s Book Nook and I will be taking up the mantel and hosting a combination of the two called:
Library Love Challenge!
If you love to read and/or listen to books then you also love to buy every book you want to read. And, well, that puts a hurt on your wallet. Checking books (print, ebook, or audios) out from the library can save you LOTS of money and in most places getting a library card is FREE.
Runs: January 1, 2017 – December 31, 2017. You can join any time.
♡ Put a sign up post on your blog or (dedicate a Goodreads shelf or LibraryThing) and link it below. Make sure it’s public.
♡ The goal is to read at least twelve (12) books from the library, but you can read more. While twelve is the minimum, there is no maximum limit. See the different levels below and pick the one that works best for you.
♡ Any format will work for this challenge (print, ebook, or audio); as long as you checked it out from the library, it counts.
♡ Books can be any genre (fiction, nonfiction, romance, fantasy, mystery, thriller, horror, etc.).
♡ Crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed, including re-reads. The goal is to support your local library and save money.
♡ Write a review – 2 sentences or an essay, whatever works for you, but there is a minimum of 2 sentences. Not sure what to write? How about something like, “The plot was a delight, but the characters didn’t capture me.”
- Dewey Decimal: read 12 books
- Thrifty Reader: read 24 books
- Overdrive Junkie: read 36 books
- Library Card on Fire: read 50+ books
