2015 Library Challenges

This year I am going to challenge myself to three library challenges, especially since I am a heavy user of the library, not only borrowing books, but also audio, video, and digital (both audio and e-books) materials.

Here are the challenges:

Readers to the Rescue Library Challenge




This is being hosted by Shelia at Book Journey.   Basically anything bookish that you sign out (so a movie or a TV miniseries based on a book do count) from the library.  Shelia has more information at her site.  Here are the levels:

  • 6-11 check outs - Rookie
  • 12-16 check outs - Intermediate
  • 17-22 check outs - Seasoned
  • 23-27 check outs - Experienced
  • 28+  check outs - Going Pro!
I will be going for Going Pro! and only count those that I have completed and returned.
1) The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
2) The Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis
3) Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis 
4) Mr. Miracle by Debbie Macomber
5) Daisy Miller by Henry James
6) The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis
7) The Silver Chair by C.S. Lewis
8) The Last Chair by C.S. Lewis
9) Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
10) The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton

Snagged @ The Library Challenge


This is a pretty simple one as well. You can sign-up at The Geeky Bloggers Book Blog. Here are the details:

• Runs January 1, 2015 – December 31, 2015. You can join any time. 
• The goal is to read at least twelve (12) books from the library. Twelve should be easy, that’s one a month. 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 (print, ebook or audio) 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. 
• To join this challenge, grab the 2015 Snagged @ The Library Reading 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 (so as long as you have a dedicated shelf and Felicia has created a Goodreads group), Shelfari (I’ve created a Shelfari group. You can join and post your progress within the group), or BookLikes, etc., for the 2015 Snagged @ The Library Reading Challenge. The point of linking up is to have a place where people can see what you’re reading.

They have 4 levels:
  1. Dewey Decimal: read 12 books
  2. Thrifty Reader: read 24 books
  3. Overdrive Junkie: read 36 books
  4. Stalking the Bookstacks: read 50+ books
I will be going for Level 3 Overdrive Junkie
1) The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
2) The Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis
3) Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis 
4) Mr. Miracle by Debbie Macomber
5) Daisy Miller by Henry James
6) The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis
7) The Silver Chair by C.S. Lewis
8) The Last Chair by C.S. Lewis
9) Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
10) The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton
