The 2010 Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge

OK, I admit it – I'm seriously addicted to reading challenges. And I am trying to keep it under control, but this is one I really need.

One of my goals for 2010 is to buy fewer books. Which means I'll be reading more of the books I already own, and borrowing more books from the public library. So this challenge is a natural for me, and fits right in with my program. Right?

The 2010 Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge is being hosted by J. Kaye of J. Kaye's Book Blog, and runs throughout 2010. Just about anything qualifies, as long as it's checked out of the library – audio, e-books, young adult and young reader. Re-reads are allowed, and so are crossovers with other challenges. There's no need to list your books in advance, but if you choose to, you can change your list at any time. And you don't need a blog to participate.

There are four levels to choose from:
  • The Mini - Check out and read 25 library books.
  • Just My Size - Check out and read 50 library books.
  • Stepping It Up - Check out and read 75 library books.
  • Super Size Me - Check out and read 100 library books.
To read about the challenge and sign up, visit the challenge announcement page here.

I'm going to be signing up at the "Mini" level, although I hope to do better than that. I won't be making a list in advance, but I'll be updating my progress on my challenge blog during the year.


  1. Good luck with your 2010 challenges!

  2. I'm so glad you signed up for this one!! I'm doing the super size me...I love my library and have told myself that I can't buy any books for at least 6 months..I have so many on my shelves that I need to read.

    Have fun!!

  3. Good luck! I love my library and the more you visit the more books you'll want to leave with :)


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
