The #ReadingMyLibrary challenge is hosted by Stefani of Caught Read Handed and Amy of Read What I Like. The goal? Read at least one book from your local library in the month of April. I’m a little late to the party, since the challenge started on April 1, but what the heck. I love my library, and I love to talk about it.
Since I missed the first two check-ins, I will use this post to quickly catch up.
1. A little information about my library. Well, my library is actually a county-wide library system. There are five libraries, and I am lucky enough to live within driving distance to two of them. Both recently moved; one into a brand-new building, and the other into a renovated barn. Neither one is particularly big, but the buildings are pretty. And the staff is wonderful.
2. Books I suggested to my library. My latest suggestions were Our Endless Numbered Days and The Day the Crayons Quit. The library got both of them, and I was the very first one to check them out.
Even though I am participating in #TBR20 (or #TBR25 now, to make up for some irresistible book deals) in an effort to get the TBR pile at home down, I am reading quite a few library books this month. I’ve finished Our Endless Numbered Days yesterday (just in time for The Socratic Salon’s discussion of the book), and the kids and I have read The Days the Crayons Quit about 5 times already since Saturday. I’m about to start reading Academy Street, Miss Marvel and How to Raise a Wild Child.
My check-out slip for these five books states at the bottom: Cost to buy these items: $91.95. Value of using your library: Priceless!
