  • 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


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 62 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.


All Library books read:

    • Thanks Jen. I just get all I can from the library rather than buying everything. I read a lot so it makes sense both financially and it is not a tough challenge for me to do.

  1. I love seeing the savings! I haven’t read many library books this year – I’ve been pretty focused on reading review books and books I’ve bought over the years. And I have Scribd which gets me a lot of the books I need for book club.

    • Yes I do the savings thing because it is interesting to see even if it is a bit of work. I know what you mean as I have KU but don’t use it nearly as often as I’d like because of the ARCs and library books which have due dates.
