This challenge runs from now to December 31, 2019. You can join anytime.
* The goal is to read at least twelve (12) books from the library, but you can read more - there is no maximum limit. See the different levels below and pick the one that works best for you.
* Any format will work for this challenge (prints, ebooks, or audios) as long as you checked it out with your library card either in the Library or on R.E.A.D.S. (www.reads.lib.overdrive.com).
* Books can be any genre (fiction, nonfiction, romance, sci-fi, etc.). Crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed, including re-reads.
* Comment below with which level you hope to achieve and let us know which level you actually achieve at the end of the year.

Levels:
* Dewey Decimal: Read 12 books
* Thrifty Reader: Read 24 books
* Overdrive Junkie: Read 36 books
* Library Addict: Read 48 books
* Library Card on Fire: Read 60+ books

Way to go, Denise...it may not be on fire but your card is seriously sparkin & smokin! There's no doubt it will be in flames next year!!! :)

We're going to keep this challenge open for 2020! It will run from January 1st through December 31st. This is a great challenge to help support the Library so I'd Love to see you guys join us in this one!

I'm all fired up to show the Library some more Love in 2020 ;)

Joetta | 3 comments Does craft books count? If so my library card stays on fire! LOL! Realistically, I am just now getting back into reading. I may never read as much as you two (TRenee and Denise) but at least I am back into reading. : )
