I Love Library Books Reading Challenge 2015

OK, here it comes again. The various annual reading challenges hosted by various blogs.  See this website for the various challenges (more will be coming in the next months) I signed up for a lot of them this year and am still working on some of them.  I know I'll be doing more next year. Some I did this year that already know I'll be back for next year, such as the one you see here.  I love going to the library so I  definitely need to sign up for this one again.  I'm still working on this one for this year as I know I won't stop borrowing books before the year is over, and I currently have two books out from the library.  I definitely will check out more than 50, so I'm going with that level.

To sign up visit the Books Dragon's Lair at this link.  Below are the details copied from the 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.
  • read books you checked 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 in January)
  • a blog is not necessary, just comment that you want to join in or link up another way


  • board book - 3
  • picture book - 6
  • early reader - 9
  • chapter book - 12
