A library haul after months | Notes from my Reading

Despite so much going on over here between work, house projects, yard work, and just daily living challenges in this pandemic era, I've been able to squeeze in time to read as well, which I'm thankful for, because the news has been abysmal these past few weeks for various reasons and I'm continually worrying about where humanity is headed, even more so than I did before.

A library haul after months...My biggest highlight in books this past week was that the library opened for holds pickup. I'd been checking their website every week to find if next week was going to be the week it opened. So when the notice finally came through last week, I was beyond thrilled. I was also very unsure what books to request from the library since I had gotten very used to reading online.

Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge (2010)



Now this is a challenge that I can easily do. Most of the books I read are borrowed from the library. Funnily though, I am also planning to clear off my shelves next year. So it's going to be interesting to see how the two compete with each other.

This challenge is hosted by J. Kaye @ J. Kaye's Book Blog.

Challenge Guidelines:
1. Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, YA, Young Reader – any book as long as it is checked out from the library count.
2. 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.
3. Crossovers from other reading challenges count.
4. Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010.

There are 4 levels to sign-up at, and I am going for the Just My Size level, and read 50 library books, though I hope to read up to 75 books from the library.

If you read a lot of books from the library, like I do, or would like to read more from the library, sign-up here.

My final tally:


37 / 50 books. 74% done!
