Today, my local library reopened after being closed for months of renovations. It’s a beautiful library now, considerably larger and more open, filled with natural light, and an inviting place to spend time. There were many friends and students there celebrating the reopening.
So what could be more fitting a celebration than to sign up for J. Kaye’s new 2010 Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge? I enjoyed participating in her challenge for 2009, but seriously underestimated how many library books I would read. Here’s how her challenge works:
There are four levels:
–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.
(Aim high. As long as you read 25 by the end of 2010, you are a winner.)
3. Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, YA, Young Reader – any book as long as it is checked out from the library count. Checked out like with a library card, not purchased at a library sale.
4. No need to list your books in advance. You may select books as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed.
5. Crossovers from other reading challenges count.
6. Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010.
I’m going to sign up for the JUST MY SIZE category: check out and read 50 library books. Thanks, J. Kaye, for hosting this reading challenge again! I’m going to enjoy my new library and my reading!
