As you all know I love my local library and read several books from the library. I don't have to buy books often because my library owns almost every book I want to read and if they don't own it then I just have to inter library loan it. It is nice having books right at my finger tips without cleaning out my piggy bank. I would not be able to be this avid of a reader without my local library. Don't get me wrong I enjoy owning books, but I also enjoy supporting my local library.
The Book Monsters will be hosting a Library Readathon from June 16th to 22nd. Be sure to join in on that fun.
My own library readathon will be coming up towards the end of May beginning of June. I haven't decided yet.
My goal for this reading challenge will just be to read as many library books as possible over the summer. I know this will be no problem since I visit the library so frequently. I often have more books checked out then I can possibly read, but I renew them or keep them overdue to finish them all. The great thing about my library is that they keep updated with the new releases so their supply is constantly getting updated and if they don't own something I can always put in a purchase request. I never feel like I'm forced to read only old books. I read a good mixture of older books and new releases.
Thanks to The Book Monsters for hosting. This is going to be such a fun challenge. I'm excited to be apart of it and encourage people to fall in love with their local library.
