2010 Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge

J.Kaye at J. Kaye's Book Blog is hosting this wonderful challenge this year.  Of course, you know this one is dear to my heart.  Last year 49% of the books I read came from a public library, and I plan to keep my reading at that same level this year.  Here are the rules J. Kaye has set out:

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.)
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Crossovers from other reading challenges count.
  • Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010.
I'm aiming for the "JUST MY SIZE" - 50 books from the library is very do-able for me.  I'm really going to try very hard to read at least one I already own for every book I bring home from the library. It's just that I see so many wonderful recommendations, and I love the downloadable audio books our library offers ( I don't even have to leave home!).  What a wonderful treat for our towns though to know that the public library can get anybook they want.

Hmmmm.....which one should I put on reserve?  If you want to join, go to J. Kaye's post here and join in the fun.


  1. This is one challenge I could do, since I have rediscovered the library in recent months.
    If I did challenges...

  2. So glad you are joining in the fun! 2010 is going to be a fun year in reading. I can't wait.


Welcome, thanks for stopping by. Now that you've heard our two cents, perhaps you have a few pennies to throw into the discussion.
