The 2010 Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge

The 2010 Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge is being hosted by J. Kaye's Book Blog. The guidelines are as follows:

1. Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate.

2. 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.)

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. Crossovers from other reading challenges count.

6. Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010.

7. When you sign up, put the direct link to your post where your library books will be listed. Include the URL to the original post so that other viewers can find this fun challenge. If you’d prefer to put your list in the sidebar of your blog, please leave your viewers the link to the sign up page. Again, so viewers can join the challenge too.

8. You do NOT need to review your books. That is optional.

  1. *grin* - I decided I wouldn't do a library challenge this year because I had no problem hitting my quota last year, and what I really want to do is get some of the books off Mt TBR, so I figured I'd focus on that instead!

    Best of luck with your one though :-)

  2. Fair enough :) And thank you! Fingers crossed!

  3. Welcome to the Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge. This is going to be a fun reading year.

    Happy New Year!!
