Book Challenge Complete!!
I'm done!!! I have completed the Support your Local Library Book Challenge. Click here to see my list of books that I completed for this challenge.
I had a great time with this challenge. I love the library. I love browsing for books. I love reading books. This challenge was right up my alley.
I read some great books, some not so great ones and finished a couple that I thought I would never get through. I also gave up on a couple of books. Life is too short and there are too many good books to waste your time trying to read a book that just doesn't "fit."
I thought when I started this challenge that I would breeze right through the 50 books I committed to, and surely would get to 100 before the end of the year. Well, that was overly ambitious of me. I put all other books on hold to finish this challenge and now have a huge TBR pile that I am itching to get to. I still have my name on the reserve list for a couple of books that I want to read from the library but will probably take a break and read some of the books that are calling my name here at home.
I will definitely do this challenge again next year. What I will do differently is that my completed list will be more of a journal than a list. I think I would like to take more notes as to how much I liked the book, if I want to find more books by particular authors, and other notations that I think of at the time.
All in all it has been a great challenge. I was excited to start and excited to end. I'm looking forward to a little break and then beginning again next year.
