Meg @ A Bookish Affair said...

Hi! I'm new to your blog but I saw this challenge on Proud Book Nerd's site and knew that this would be a great challenge for me!

Hellen said...

Hi! I found a link to this on another site. This challenge shouldn't be too difficult for me, as most of the books I read (those that are not e-books) are from the library.

Ione St. James said...

I spend most of my days at the library, to the point where the librarians know me by name. I am SO going to do this challenge. I can't wait!

kelseykins said...

I've just started getting books form the library, I definitely want to participate!

marginalia said...

I made an error. The first Linda (35) did not connect to my post regarding the challenge.

The correct link is Linda Frances 36.

Katrina said...

I've been wanting to rediscover my library. Thanks for the motivation. This is my first challenge. Hopefully I'll do it right.

sallyfromoz said...

I am going to join in this year - will set up my blog post and then return to add myself to Mr Linky :)

Braine @ Talk Supe said...

Signed up and I'm gunning for level 4!

Hillbilly Tonya said...

I was going to go for level 3 but then that is kind of silly since our family checks out a TON of books so I am changing it to level 4!

Susan said...

This challenge is perfect for me, since most books I read are from the library. Even most ebooks I plan to read next year can be checked out (downloaded) from the library.

Literary Marie said...

Great challenge! I'm signing up.

readingonplanetcaddick said...

This is one of my favorite challenges because I love the library so much. Thanks so much for hosting!

Alex @ Is It Amazing? said...

Sounds great! I get 97% of my books from the library so I signed up for 37+ as long as crossovers from other challenges count! :)

thecoolmom said...

I signed up for 12 but I'm sure many more than that will be in the total.

Braine @ Talk Supe said...

HELLO and Happy New Year!

I was wondering if you could create a progress bar for this that we all could grab to track or book count? Thanks!

Rochelle (Books Like Stars) said...

I love this challenge, it's a great way to support libraries in your area. It's my second year doing it and this time I chose level 2.

@Braine (Talk Supe):

This is my third year participating in this challenge - I love going to the library!

Like Kristin, this is also my third year participating in this challenge. Thank you so much for hosting it!

Gina @ My Precious said...

I actually love our DIGITAL library. I use it through Library2go. Usually reading on my kindle. Thanks for hosting such a great challenge. I'm going for level 1 hope I can read 12 books.

Tressa said...

I joined with a Goodreads link. I've already got 14 books on there that I've read this year. I will definitely be able to meet level four since most of my books come from the library and I read around 100 or so a year. Thanks for setting up the challenge!

goldmoon said...

Hi :-)
I found this challenge in a friend's blog and I'm excited to join it :-)

Vern said...

Thanks for developing this challenge! We all need to promote local library more. I signed up for level 1.

Kristin said...

Thanks for hosting this great challenge. I just have a quick question... do manga/graphic novels count as a book?

wildnightin said...

Huzzah! One I can whole-heartedly support! Many thanks for thinking this one up. I'm going to try level 1.

maphead said...

Just found this. Sign me up! Put me down for Level 4!

barmybex said...

It's only June and I've completed this challenge! Now read 43 library books. :D

Jamie said...

I wish I knew about this at the end of last year. I've already read about 40 books from the library this year.

bloodymurder said...

Very oddly I started posting reviews as part of a self-imposed challenge with exactly the same name without realising that I had been roundly beaten to it, so i thought I should join in! I didn't link to my first post though, which should have been:
