I Love Library Books Reading Challenge 2014

Even this year isn't over yet and I'm still working on this challenge for this year, I've decided to join this reading challenge again for next year.  Click here at Book Dragon's Lair  to sign up.  Below are the details copied from Book Dragon's blog:

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!


  • 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.


  • board book - 3
  • picture book - 6
  • early reader - 9
  • chapter book - 12
  • middle grades - 18
  • Young adult - 24
  • adult - 36
  • just insert IV - 50 

I'm choosing 50 or more.  I'm up to more than 80 for this year, so I know I can do it that way again.
