Welcome to the fifth annual Library Love Challenge hosted by Angel’s Guilty Pleasures & Books of My Heart

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, 2021 – December 31, 2021. You can join anytime. The sign-up will remain open until Dec. 31st, 2021.

  1. Love this challenge so I’m definitely in. I linked to my GR shelf for now, but will also do a post of all my 2021 challenges and goals on Delighted Reader. I’m going for Dewey Decimal and will level up WHEN I reach it. 🙂

    Thank you both for going to the trouble of hosting again. I’m excited!

  2. I took a hiatus from challenges these past few years (even coyer sort of, I really hosted more than participated), but I’m going to try and ease back in. I’m actually planning to DO coyer this year and since this challenge is so doable for me, I’m going to try my hand at keeping f track of it as well. I linked up to my new Goodreads shelf for it ??

  3. I love going go the library. Checking out books seems just like shopping but it doesn’t cost me any money. I am in at the Library Card on Fire Level.

  4. I just heard about this! I am already on 6 library reads and working on my 7th. This would be a fun one to do! I only have to figure out how to publicly share a tag-filtered list from theStorygraph as I don’t use Goodreads anymore… Or maybe I’ll just join you from my blog!
