I hope you will join us in celebrating and supporting libraries.
If you are like us; then you would like to purchase every book you want to read. And, well that can put a hurt on your wallet. One way to help lessen the hurt is to check out books (prints, ebooks, or audios) from the library. If you do this, it will help save you LOTS of money $$.
Getting a library card in most places is FREE. So, if you love to read and/or listen to books then grab your library card and join the challenge.
Runs:January 1, 2020 – December 31, 2020. You can join anytime. The sign-up will remain open until Dec. 31st, 2020.

This year we are doing things differently. Now that I’ve got a co-host who is as much in love with the library as I am; we’re going to be offering up MONTHLY GIVEAWAYS. Each month will be something different. You do have to join the challenge to enter the giveaways, then we have a few freebie options; like following one or both of us, sharing, and then the main entries which are adding your book reviews. The Monthly Post/Giveaway will go live each month on the 1st and you will have until the 4th of the next month to enter, before the giveaway closes.
Once you have your sign up post live, add your link below!
Please grab the button to share, too!
