2011 Support Your Local Library Challenge

I recently started following a blog that seems to be very much into various reading challenges.  The blogger just posted one that is perfect for me.  Here’s the descriptive paragraph:

Here’s a new book challenge for you. All you have to do is read at least 12 library books by the end of the year. For more information and the guidelines of the reading levels, click here. Happy reading.

The top-tier level is 100 books.  True story: I was rather sad when I realized that Christmas was on Saturday this year because it was going to disrupt my usual weekly library-going routine.  Happy about Christmas–but sad about the library.  So I think I’ll aim for the top-tier on this challenge.  That’s two a week?  On it.

Update: Follow progress on this challenge, and a few others I joined on my 2011 Reading Challenges post.

    Wow! You are going to read two books in a week?! I’m impressed with that commitment. I would be lucky to read one in two months, though I think if I pushed myself and committed to a specific reading time each day or at least 3-4 times a week, I might be able to read one book in each month. For me, it would require making a plan to read a BOOK each day for awhile, instead of other more “immediate” types of publications like the newspaper, blogs, internet news sources, etc. Good luck, and keep your readers posted on how you do.

    1. Books are pretty much the only thing I read (other than a brief survey of the news online), so that helps… I read novels during most meals, during my lunch break from work, for a while in the morning on weekends before I get out of bed… I also usually read for a while immediately after work–I work from home entirely on my laptop, and at five o’clock I’m sick of my computer, so I turn it off and read until I need to go make dinner. I don’t really spend long stretches of time reading, but small pieces throughout the day add up. I’m also a pretty quick reader (although I admit I tend to forget details too!) and it probably doesn’t hurt that I like Young Adult either. If I was reading Les Mis and Tolstoy all the time, I’d have to rethink this. 🙂
