Library love check in

Hey y’all! Around halfway through the year, so I took a look at my progress on the 2021 library love challenge. Last year I blew my goal out of the water, and it looks like this year will be similar, actually. 🤣

I had planned for 12 this year, since I was planning to read more from my shelves and have a full time job again (pandemic reading was crazy). But, of course, I’ve already read 28 books from the library this year. I guess I’m aiming for the 36 tier now, because last year I didn’t even hit 48 so it seems unlikely I would beat it this year. Clearly I’m terrible at estimating my goals though, so who knows. 😊


If you’re interested as well, go see the full post and sign up link from the hosts! The levels for the challenge are:

  • 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
