2011 Support Your Local Library Challenge

Hosted by: Book Junkie’s Bookshelf
January 1 – December 31, 2011

I love my local library, and even more now that they opened a branch closer to my house. I loved this challenge last year and I know I will have fun again this year.

The Rules:

  • Anyone can join.
  • You don’t need a blog to participate.
  • Non-Bloggers: Post your list of books in the comment section of the wrap-up post on Jamie’s blog.
  • Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, YA, Young Reader – basically any book counts just as long as it is checked out from the library. Books MUST be checked out like with a library card, books purchased at a library DO NOT count.
  • 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.
  • Crossovers from other reading challenges count.

There are four levels to this challenge…Pick your poison:

  1. The Mini – Check out and read 30 library books.
  2. “Fun” Size – Check out and read 40 library books.
  3. Jumbo Size – Check out and read 50 library books.
  4. Mega Size – Check out and read 51+ library books.

I’m going with the smaller challenge, just because I really want to get through more books on my shelves than from outside, but I don’t think 30 will be  too much to handle.
