2020 Library Love Challenge is COMPLETE! :)

Hey y’all! In April last year, I stumbled upon my favorite reading challenge ever, the Library Love reading challenge! Hosted by Angel’s Guilty Pleasures & Books of My Heart, the goal is simple: read books from the library! And boy, do I ever do that!

2020 was probably even more library-heavy than usual since I had so much time to read and also couldn’t leave home for bookstore browsing and impulse buys. 😂 Instead it was like impulse loaning, which is much more budget-friendly. Thanks, libraries!

Here are the tiers that were established from the hosts for level of reading:

  • Dewey Decimal: Read 12 books (my goal)
  • Thrifty Reader: Read 24 books
  • Overdrive Junkie: Read 36 books
  • Library Addict: Read 48 books
  • Library Card on Fire: Read 60+ books

My original goal was twelve books, because apparently I forgot who I was for a minute. 🤷‍♀️ So, where did I end up?

Overdrive Junkie!

I read 41 books from the library, which is in the “Overdrive Junkie” tier. This kind of made me laugh, because I actually finally switched to mostly using the new Libby app instead of Overdrive. There are some things Overdrive still does better, but I’ve given Libby a fair second chance. Anyway, I read a ton from the library! I’m definitely joining again in 2021. 🥰
