Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

I Love Library Books Reading Challenge




I Love Library Books
Reading Challenge
2014


hosted by me, here at Book Dragon's Lair

Sign- up below

Our love of reading can be expensive! Not only are we purchasing books but some of us also need space to keep them. I had so much fun with this challenge last year. Let's do it again!

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 is coming)
  • 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?

I'm in. The blog address is new (to participate in reading challenge. Don't have a clue what I'm doing and the learning curve is a little slow for this senior citizen.

Hi, I'm signing up for the very, very lowest level; that way there's a chance that I may actually complete it! Who knows, I may even move up... Thanks for hosting.

Sorry, I didn't mean to post as "anonymous". I hit the button too soon :( Rose Bernadette

Bev Hankins said...

I'm in! I can't resist a challenge--as we all know. :-)

Donna said...

I'm new to book reading challenges..but since I do read mostly from the library I would love to join in on this one. I will read 50 (or more). I do have a blog and will hook up to Linky after I set up a post for your challenge.

Yvonne said...

Sounds like fun! I'm in!

Bea said...

I practically live at my library. I'll start with the middle grade level but I'll probably move up at some point.

Samantha M. said...

I had to put up another link. Number 3 will take you nowhere. So sorry about that!

Debra Mauldin said...

This is my first participating, so, I think I will start with #12 - Chapter Book.

Hamlette said...

Hi! This will be my first year participating in reading challenges like these, so I'm starting with Chapter Book. Thanks for hosting this!

Allysa Ivey said...

I am going to be doing 24

Kari said...

Yay! Thank you for hosting!

Jane Harfeld said...

I am in, I have signed up for 12 books but hope to get a lot further than that.

Katy McCoy said...

I'm going to try 36 although I'm tempted to go for 50....

Lija Broka said...

Oh dear, oh dear ... I actually joined! I was very tempted to join last year, but only discovered it half way through and decided in the end not to brave it. I love libraries. Between the four of us and several authorities ... we hit somewhere between 150-200 worth of books out at any given time. As for number ... I am part of 2 reading groups, so that should hopefully be around 24 books already ... I think 36 will be my goal. Though will try to go higher.
My blog is mainly about cross stitch, but I will put up a new tab especially for this challenge.

Carissa said...

Sounds like an easy challenge for me . Since most of my books come from the library. Going for ust insert IV - 50

LuAnn Braley said...

Joining at the Board Book level and leaving myself room to grow! :O)

Susan said...

I'm new to this challenge. I'm going for the Young Adult level although in 2013 I read 56 books from the library. I'm trying to read more of the books I own so we'll see if that goes better in 2014 than it did in 2013

phaedra said...

I have just signed up since I am an avid reader and use the library for most of my books this challenge will be perfect to increase my reading for the year.

Beth said...

I missed my 2013 goal, so I am lowering myself to 18 books to begin with. When I meet that goal, I will raise my goal further.

Darlene said...

Thanks again for hosting, Gina!

L Fisher said...

I would love to join this challenge because I haven't been to the library for so long! I am doing a TBR challenge as well to read some of those books on my shelf. I'm going to start at the Early Reader level and commit to 9 books from the library. I don't have a blog, but will set up a shelf in GoodReads. https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/523613-leslie?shelf=i-love-library-books-2014

Jane Harfeld said...

sorry. I have by mistake added a link that should have been to the review side, Would you please remove link 84.

returningreader said...

As I've made it to Board Book level, which was my goal on signing up, I'm taking another step and moving my target up to Picture Book, six books! Cheers.

kaida said...

I've passed the 'adult' stage and am working on the 'just insert iv' level now. Two more months left to go!
