2017 Library Love Challenge

2017 Library Love Challenge

My first "official" reading challenge of the year! I love my library and this challenge encourages me to visit and share the love! In the "modern" age, we don't have to physically walk into the library to show our love, we can also check out books virtually and read them on our eReaders! (Audiobooks count too!)

The 2017 Library Love Challenge is hosted by Bea's Book Nook and Angel's Guilty Pleasures! Here are the Challenge Details and how YOU can join...


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 at the Challenge site.  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."

Levels:
Dewey Decimal: read 12 books
Thrifty Reader: read 24 books
Overdrive Junkie: read 36 books

Library Card on Fire: read 50+ books

*There are also going to be Giveaways for participating! You can read more on that at...

My goal for this challenge is reading 12 books. I am tempted to go for Thrifty Reader, but I'm going to keep it simple with the Dewey Decimal level. Are YOU up for the challenge to Love Your Library?

Have fun with this challenge! I used to visit my library more often but working full time with tons of review books on my shelf has made my visits there less and less and I miss it.

Hi Laura!
Yes, I go to our library in waves, but I do try to patronize it as much as possible. It's good for them and good for my wallet! And sometimes when I request a book they don't have they purchase it for others to enjoy too!

Thanks for stopping by!
