Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge

Now here is a challenge for me.  Why?  Because as of right now I am not a card carrying Library user.  I know…. shameful right?  I just never get there…..  easier for me to pick up a book I want to read through Amazon or a local book store and not worry about it being due back….

2010 is going to change that.  With J Kaye introducing this challenge I have thought more and more about the importance of supporting our local libraries.  SO this is the year!

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.

I am going for the Mini…. 25 library books this year.  This is huge for me.  I dont think I have checked out 25 library books in the past 20 years combined.

  1. I cannot live without my library card! I read about 35-40 books a month and that would cost me way too much in book buying – so I have to buy the books I know I’ll read again.

    As of right now I have 63 books checked out of my library! So this challenge is going to be quite the easy one for me.

  2. I love the public library-I have had one since I was a child-I must admit they know me, my kitties and the tribulations of my life by name-I am fortunate to have an unbelievable library-we can check out books on IPODS. They also have an amazing lecture series.

  3. I’m a library user – not a heavy user but I am number 5 for a few books to be released next week – I CAN”T WAIT!!!

    My tip for you is to embrace your online library hold system. I look at the to be released list (usually on BN.COM) and if there is a title that I want to read, I reserve a copy right away.

  4. Wow. Do you have a library card? That was the first thing I did, O.K., second, just after getting my new MN drivers license with my new address. You will love it. It’s better than a book store cause the price is right. You can try a book, and if it’s no good, no big deal. If it’s great, score up another for a new author found. I love looking for books that are written by my author’s who recommend books I’ve already read and loved. Oh, and wait until you see my new shirt from my husband. It was a great bookies Christmas present for his little bookie woman, Kaydi

  5. This one is a no brainer for me. I love the library and check books out all the time. I think you will be very happy to go to the library and see all the cool stuff you can get there. I get DVDs of first run movies for free and music CDs that I can borrow and try. Have fun with the challenge Sheila!

Hmmmm... what do you think?
