2018 Library Love Challenge

Anyone who follows my blog knows I love challenges.  I think they're fun and they are a great way to connect with fellow bloggers and meet some new ones.  I've looked for a few new challenges this year and think I found a few to add in with some of my old ones.  The 2018 Library Love Challenge is new to me this year and is hosted by Angel's Guilty Pleasures and Brooke Blogs.  Here are the rules:  

Runs: January 1, 2018 – December 31, 2018. You can join any time.
  • Put a sign up post on your blog or (dedicate a Goodreads shelf or LibraryThing) and link it below. Make sure it’s public.
  • The goal is to read at least twelve (12) books from the library, but you can read more. While twelve is the minimum, 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 from the library, it counts.
  • Books can be any genre (fiction, nonfiction, romance, fantasy, mystery, thriller, horror, etc.).
  • Crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed, including re-reads. The goal is to support your local library and save money.
  • Write a review to enter the giveaway – 2 sentences or an essay, whatever works for you, but there is a minimum of 2 sentences. Not sure what to write? How about something like, “The plot was a delight, but the characters didn’t capture me.” “I enjoyed the story and really liked the characters.”
  • As an added bonus: We are offering up a GIVEAWAY with this Challenge. Winner will be picked at the end of the year!! The entries are the direct links to your book reviews and you will have until Jan. 3rd, 2019 to enter your reviews in the linky and then the RafflecopterGo here to enter the giveaway: 2018 Library Love Challenge Review Link-ups.

  • Grab the 2018 Library Love Challenge button and post this reading challenge on your blog to track your progress. Please include a link back to this sign-up post, so others can join the reading challenge too. You do not have to be a book blogger to participate; you can track your progress on Goodreads/LibraryThing (as long as you have a dedicated shelf someplace).

I think I'm going for the Thrifty Reader Level.  I have 3 awesome libraries in my area so it shouldn't be too hard.  Plus, maybe I'll save some money.


  1. I wish I had some good libraries near me! Good luck!

  2. What a great challenge! I read almost exclusively from my local library. We're lucky to have a great county system. At the bottom of our check-out slips they will even include how much money we "saved" by using the library instead of buying the books!

  3. This is a great challenge. I know you'll do great.

  4. I need to participate in this one!! <3
