2010 Support Your Local Library Challenge

This is another no brainer challenge for me. Generally I get around 80% of the books that I read from the library. I am going to be brave and say that I am going to go for Super Size Me option, despite the fact that I am a bit worried about even making it to 100 books read for next year. This year, I would have made it to this level!

Here are the rules as adapted from J Kaye's blog post announcing the challenge.

1. Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate.To learn how to sign up without having a blog, click here.

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 under Mr. Linky, put the direct link to your post where your library books will be listed. Include the URL to this 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.


  1. The MINI is to check out and read 25 books?! Gosh, that's a lot! I know you can do it, Marg, but I don't think I can, especially if I want to clear some of these TBR shelves in my house. That challenge is a lot of books :-)

  2. I'm joining this one too, at the JUST MY SIZE level - I'll probably read more than 50 but prob. not 75. Good luck w/ your list!

  3. I am thinking that I might have overstretched myself here Aarti. I might cut it back to 75 simply because otherwise I won't get to read any of my own books.
