<CHALLENGE COMPLETE: 120 Library Books!>

I just signed up for  the 100+ Book Challenge and since I’m a library user, I’m getting in on this one as well. Books count for both so I’m going to shoot for 75- Stepping It Up since at least 3/4 of the books that I’ll read will definitely be library books.  If the numbers for the challenges are even higher,  then that’s even better!   This challenge is J. Kaye’s 2010 Support Your Local Library Challenge.

Details are here:

1. Anyone can join. You don’t need a blog to participate.

2. There are four levels:

–The Mini – Check out and read 25 library books.

–Just My Size – Check out and read 50 library books.

–Stepping It Up – Check out and read 75 library books.

–Super Size Me – Check out and read 100 library books.

(Aim high. As long as you read 25 by the end of 2010, you are a winner.)

3. Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, YA, Young Reader – any book as long as it is checked out from the library count. Checked out like with a library card, not purchased at a library sale.

4. No need to list your books in advance. You may select books as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed.

5. Crossovers from other reading challenges count.

6. Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010.

Library Challenge has 2 Comments

  1. I did this challenge this year – the lowest level but I used the library more than I had since my kids were little! I love being able to reserve online and then just go pick up a book when they call to say it’s in. Love that!

  2. So glad you are joining the Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge. I can’t wait to start the new year. It’s going to be a great year in books. I can feel it!
