Library Books Reading Challenge



Library Books
Reading Challenge
2013


hosted by Gina at Book Dragon's Lair

Sign- up here

Our love of reading can be expensive! Not only are we purchasing books but we also need space to keep them. I've started using the library (again) but couldn't find a challenge to help me. Here it is. There are a number of levels, for those who don't have a library card yet to those that live there. Enjoy!

 Requirements:
  • choose a level - you may move up as needed, just not down.
  • check books out of the library
  • books may overlap with other challenges
  • any format allowed (print, ebook, audio)
  • reviews are not necessary but a list of books read is. (post with review linky)
  • a blog is not necessary, just comment that you want to join in

Levels:
  • board book - 3
  • picture book - 6
  • early reader - 9
  • chapter book - 12
  • middle grades - 18
  • Young adult - 24
  • adult - 36
  • just insert IV - 50 
Ready?

This challenge fits perfectly with another one I'm doing!

Harvee Lau said...

I'm not doing any challenges next year, except for 100 books in a year challenge, maybe, but this challenge does sound good. Have fun!

The Mistress of the Dark said...

Going to jump on the bandwagon here :)

Jamie said...

Hi, I just signed up. This would be just right. I get most f my books from the library.

thecoolmom said...

I'm in! I'm playing it safe and signing up for the lowest level, but I'm sure that will be exceeded.

Jamie said...

Is it Ok to change your level? I'm pretty sure I can make it to 50 or more.

This is MY kind of challenge! Last year I read close to 70 library books. Can't wait to get started!!
Thanks for hosting!

West Virginia Red said...

Really glad you picked this one up. The old Library challenge I did last year disappeared and I just did have the time to pick it up myself. I would have really missed it.

Jane said...

Glad you're hosting this challenge! Thanks!

Susan said...

Great idea for a challenge! I'm off to the library to pick up a book that's on hold!

barmybex said...

Awesome, thanks for hosting!
I did something similar last year but I hadn't found anyone else this year so am so glad I came across yours. :D

Looking forward to this! I'm going to take each level as it comes but I'm sure I'll make it to at least my goal of Chapter Book (12 books).

Rhubarb said...

I applaud anything that supports libraries! A great idea!

Kari said...

So excited! I love my library! Thank you for hosting!

Shaz said...

Great challenge. We are weekly visitors to our library so this is the perfect challenge for me to participate in.

Lauren said...

Love this challenge! I'm going all the way to the top, and read many books as can get from the library.

Phoebes said...

Very interesting challenge! I'm playing with "picture book" level! :)

Ness and Michelle said...

This is one way of ensuring I will use the Library card. So thanks for the idea its going to be fun.

Abzi said...

I'm new to book blogging but hope to read 50 books this year. I'll aim for the young adult level! This could be fun :)

Bev Hankins said...

Question: If I sign up now, should I start counting books from now or can I count all library books since Jan 1, 2013? (I'm going to sign up either way...just want to count correctly.)

Book Dragon said...

Good question Bev, sorry it wasn't clear.

All books, checked out of the library and finished, count...IF it happened during 2013.

reserved during 2012 for a 2013 check out still counts if you read it this year.

clear as mud?

Ruth said...

Looks great I'm up for this and have blogged about it already.

Kate Maxwell said...

Thanks for hosting this! Fits perfectly with the fact that I try to get books from the library before going out to buy. Unfortunately, we live in a small town with a small library...thank goodness for amazon!?!

Vicki said...

Is there a link to add your reviews for this challenge?

Leyla said...

Very interesting, I'm playing with "Young Adult" level, and I'm the number 66.

deliciousfruit said...

One of my favorite challenges year after year. Being conservative by starting at Adult level, but will probably end up inserting that IV. Thanks for hosting. :D

Beth said...

So excited! I'm going for adult level- 36 books!

Megan C. Stroup said...

Great challenge! There isn't much in this world better than a free book. :)

Robin said...

Joining this challenge late in the game, but excited for it:D I'm an adult, so 37 books for me. I love libraries and think this challenge is perfect. I cannot purchase all the books I read and I am a big library supporter!

Taylor said...

Just started blogging and found this challenge. I'm excited and can't wait!

Chrystal said...

Loving this... just signed up and listed all of the books Ive borrowed from library since January! :)

Rachael said...

Sorry to sign up for the challenge so many times. You can delete 25, 26, and 80 off the list if they let you do that.

Rachael said...

I'm still on there. Thanks for doing that.

Bev Hankins said...

Finished my level! Here's my Wrap-up Post.

Level 1 Homemaker said...

Mind if I join in late?

Lija Broka said...

Considering of joining. Just a few questions. Is this only fiction? (for purposes of choosing levels) ... I tend to borrow lots of craft books from the library; skim read/look through projects ... maybe even do some. Can these be included?

Book Dragon said...

@Lija Broka - not sure, I just assumed we'd be reading cover to cover but you're right, using the library for craft or cook books is a great idea. How about if you do a project, you can count the book?

Level 1 Homemaker said...

I just passed the "Adult" level! Now, I'm working my way toward having a library IV inserted. :P
