2019 Library Love Challenge


It's no secret that I LOVE going to the library! Between my public library and the university library where I work, I visit the library AT LEAST once a week! I'm excited to participate in this challenge again this year. In 2018, 33 of my 105 books were from the library, which I'd actually like to increase in 2019. My goal for 2019 is the Overdrive Junkie level--36 books. I do read a lot of ARC's, which can account for a lot of the other books, but it's something I'd still like to increase.

Please join me in this challenge and support your local library! Getting a library card is FREE so it is super accessible! Plus, if you have a Kindle or love audiobooks, apps like OverDrive or Libby give you digital access to the library catalog as well. I'm super lucky to live in a town that has an awesome network of libraries!

Want to know more about the Library Love Challenge and sign up too? Here are the details, straight from the host, Angel's Guilty Pleasures:

  • Any format will work for this challenge (prints, ebooks, or audios); as long as you checked it out from the library, it counts.
  • Books can be any genre (fiction, nonfiction, romance, fantasy, mystery, thriller, horror, etc.).
  • Crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed, including re-reads. The goal is to support your local library and save money.

  • (Optional) Mid-Year Library Check In: This year (2019) I plan on posting a Mid-Year Library Check In Post sometime in June or July. This post is to showcase what you have done so far in the Library Love Challenge. I’ll be offering up a separate giveaway for the Mid-Year Library Check In.
  • (Optional) Reviews: Write a review to enter the giveaway – 2 sentences or an essay, whatever works for you, but there is a minimum of 2 sentences. Not sure what to write? How about something like, “The plot was a delight, but the characters didn’t capture me.” “I enjoyed the story and really liked the characters.”
