Reading Challenge



I am very interested when I found out this 2016 I Love Libraries Reading Challenge hosted by Bea’s Book Nook.  Me and my kids love library so much! We have been registered as a member of one of public library in our city and I am planning on register us to another library this year.

For this challenge (ILLRC), use your library to check out reading material – books, magazines, any sort of reading material that you are allowed to check out, physical or digital. The challenge runs January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016.

The details:

  1. Put a sign up post on your blog and link it here.
  2. If you don’t have a blog, make a dedicated goodreads shelf (or LibraryThing), make sure it’s public, and link it below.
  3. Any reading material that can be checked out of your library counts – print books, audio books, digital books, magazines, etc.
  4. As part of your sign up post, briefly write why you like using your library – free books, internet access, a quiet place to work, whatever draws you to the library.
  5. Write a review – 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 characters were a delight but the story was slow and confusing. It was disappointing.” 
  6. There will be a post each month where you can link your reviews. Each linky will run for the calendar year.
  7. Pick a level from the list below. You can move up as needed but you can’t move down.
  8. Books may overlap with other reading challenges.
  9. ETA Dec. 17: There’s a goodreads group for anyone interested in discussing libraries or books or for tracking your challenge. The group was an outgrowth of yet another library reading challenge that has since ended but the group is still active. The challenge host, The Geeky Blogger, added me as a mod to the goodreads group, come check us out!

Why do I love libraries so much? Well because they have numerous collection of books and other reading material that I can enjoy with my kids. There are also indoor playground and children library on those libraries which are definitely my kids’s favorites^^.

I’ve been going to libraries since I was in my elementary school. Over the years, I’ve checked out books, videos, and music; used their computers, free internet access, and their copiers and printers. I’ve also researched papers for my study.

I am going to updating the list here:

  1. When We Were Orphans – Kazuo Ishiguro
  2. xxxxx
  3. xxxxx
