Anne’s Progress:

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 41 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:

  1. Love seeing all the backlist books you got to with the challenge, Anne. Your help getting on Hoopla made my Library numbers skyrocket since my library system didn’t have as many that I wanted or there were long waiting lists. Thanks so much. I had a minimal goal of Dewey Decimal and am now working toward Overdrive Junkie. I’m on book #30 right now (highest ever for me). Woohoo!

  2. I really need to calculate my savings sometime, but that would take time I just don’t have at the moment. I’m seriously curious, though! Would it be okay for me to link up my Sunday post — I report on my progress there every week? Or is it suppsoed to be a separate update post?

    • Oh I don’t think we are picky. Just link up the Sunday post if you do your challenge update there. I do that often enough myself. It’s interesting and not as time consuming as I expecting to calculate my savings. I just print out my library22 shelf in Goodreads and then put enter the titles on Amazon or Audible and then add it up a page at a time and then the total. I mean I only had 41 books which isn’t that many.
