Now I am a host for the challenge so I don’t participate in the giveaways but I’m still tracking my reads and savings.  I have a total of 58 now for the middle of the year.

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.

  1. You’re doing great! I can’t believe what a push seeing your books with the cost beside them gives me to keep looking for the books through the library first. I’ve got a little list started of books I want to read that are available at the library so I can keep up the pace of snagging two a month.
    Loving the challenge, Anne!

    • I love my library! I use it a lot. Sometimes just to have the ebook along with the audio for spellings. But I have a lot of books on reserve that I want to read but don’t always want to review. Or I use the library to catchup in a series. I have one I’m going to review #3 or 4 then I might get the first few at the library to get up to date.
