Levels:

  • Dewey Decimal: Read 12 books
  • Thrifty Reader: Read 24 books
  • Overdrive Junkie: Read 36 books
  • Library Addict: Read 48 books
  • Library Card on Fire: Read 60+ books

 

This is my second year in the Library Love Challenge. My goal is 48 books, the Library Addict level.  I read and listen to quite a few but don’t always review them all here on the blog. It was reduced in number by my reviewing more new release audiobooks and a trial of Kindle Unlimited. I have a total of 67, unless I read anything more today.

I use my library extensively for all formats. I take the opportunity to read or listen to earlier books in a series when I am catching up, to try out new series, or for non-fiction research.  I do the shortest reviews and the least reviews on the blog for this challenge.  So while I recorded the challenge on the blog, it wasn’t very accurate.

I can't really remember any time when I wasn't reading. I LOVE books and what they give me. It's an opportunity to learn new things, see new places,live different emotions in a "safe" way. It lets me live in a new world.

I read all types of books but my favorites are urban fantasy and romantic suspense.I like some romance and some action / adventure / mystery in everything.I like sex in my books but please, only between TWO people.Intimate conversation is equally important to the sex in a book.It lets me see the characters.The other thing I enjoy is humor.

Friend me at Goodreads.

  1. Wow, seems like you had a great reading year! I would like to use my library more but their selection is so limited and I don’t want to spend money to borrow it from another library. I try to request books but they usually get rejected because they do not fit into the collection… I think this is just an excuse.

  2. Wowsers! You did great and it is fantastic to see how much your sixty-odd books saved you in cash. I like that you were able to do research reading and pleasure reading.
    I did this one for the first time this year. I’ve finally started getting into the habit of checking my library first before I reach for a new book. I need to get better at actively looking for new to me authors, narrators, and books at the library now.

    • Every single Audible daily deal I want I check the library first. Especially if it is an unknown author or narrator. Every single time. It has saved me a lot. And also things I see others review or if I am trying to catch up on a series. The library is awesome!

    • Thanks Angela! I really appreciate your hosting. I love this challenge because I LOVE my libraries. I have to go update for December links this afternoon. The audiobooks make a huge difference this year because they are much more expensive to purchase unless they are an Audible daily deal.
