I already frequent my library but have only checked about a few books this month. I wanted to try reading from my piles of books at home (I always join a TBR challenge and am making sure not to neglect it), and will try to do so for the rest of this month. I need to read more for my Dystopian, Nonfiction, Mental Illness Awareness, LGBT, Graphic Novels, Feminism, Fairy Tales Retold, Curvy Heroine, Diversity, Erotic Romance and Classics challenges and have one more month for the Play challenge. I don't own a lot of books that fit these challenges (in most cases, none at all), so borrowing from the library for a month will help me catch up on some of these. I get most of my audiobooks and picture books from the library, and some of my other challenges have categories of books I will need to borrow.
I'm going to try to see if I can go without buying books for all of April. Most of them I buy at second-hand stores, including one in my town that sells then for 50 cents to one dollar. If I do buy any, they will not be read until after April. I think I can do all this.
