2019 Library Love Challenge Mid-Year Results #LibraryLoveChallenge @angels_gp

Posted June 30, 2019 by Anne - Books of My Heart in Misc / 6 Comments






  • 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 third 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  62.  So my Library Card is on Fire!

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.

  1. I hardly ever use my library anymore. I want to start getting some audios from them but when I went in asked how to they just gave me a piece of paper with instructions I didn’t understand and she didn’t know how either. This was several years ago and I am sure it’s a lot easier now.
