2010 Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge

I just found this cool reading challenge! I'm all about it! If you want to check it out you can go to J.Kaye's Book Blog to read more about it and sign up on her blog!


Here's the challenge:

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

--Non-Bloggers: Post your list of books in the comment section of the wrap-up post. 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.

I know you all want to participate in this! I love the library and I think it's a great resource!!! It's FREE people! I'm going to go for the Super Size Me level. In 2008, I read 87 books. In 2009, I read 129 books! I read books, I listen to books, I read adult books, I read young adult books. I hope you do, too! Just try and read books and see if you can read at least as many books as you did last year or more!!!d

I have never known anyone to read as much as you do - it's SO impressive!! I'm definitely up for reading more this year - and I work two blocks away from my city's biggest library, so I really have no excuse!

What time of day do you do your reading?

I would LOVE to do this. Hopefully next year. Finishing up school does not allow me to read as much as I want to. How do you do it with your National Boards???? I think if I had a longer commute I would do ebooks....but I have oh about.....a 2 minute drive to work!
