2017 Library Love Challenge


When I saw this challenge, I just had to join in if only to declare, “I support my city library!!”

I absolutely love my library. I am there almost every week and many of the books I read for my blog come from it or one of the country libraries. I remember when my grandparents moved here and the library was just built, we all had to come over and take a tour. Now I live here. I hope the GPs know I am carrying on the tradition 🙂

Co-hosted by Angela of Angel’s Guilty Pleasures and Bea of Bea’s Book Nook the Challenge runs throughout 2017 and the goal is to read a minimum of 12 books, but there is no maximum. You can choose one of these four levels:

  • Dewey Decimal: read 12 books
  • Thrifty Reader: read 24 books
  • Overdrive Junkie: read 36 books
  • Library Card on Fire: read 50+ books
    What Counts/Details:
    — Any book, ebook, or audio from the library.
    — Books can be any genre.
    — Crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed, including re-reads
    — Write a review – 2 sentences or an essay, whatever works for you, but there is a minimum of 2 sentences

I have decided not to choose a level in advance, because I am curious to know just how many books I might read from the library in a year.
