Reading challenge

Library Challenge 2019

Banner

I am going to do the library challenge again which is hosted at Angela’s Guilty Pleasures.

Follow the link to get all the information.

In 2018 I used the library really well thanks to this challenge and went beyond my goal of 24. I learned how to reserve books while the books were still on order at the library and so I read a number of them that were published in 2018 and saved myself from buying them! My only difficulty was sometimes having so many become available at one time.

My goal for 2019 is going to be Overdrive Junkie with 36 as the total I am aiming for.

Books Read

  1. Becoming Mrs Lewis  Patti Callahan  Historical Fiction.   5 stars.
  2. Suitcase of Dreams  Tania Blanchard  Historical Fiction 4 stars.
  3. Marilla of Green Gables  Historical Fiction  4 stars
  4. The Red Address Book. Multi Time line Fiction. 4 stars
  5. Strawberry Hill  Catherine Anderson  3 stars

  1. Yay! As I librarian I love seeing everyone discover their libraries with this challenge.

    As for all your books coming in at once, see if your system allows you to suspend your holds. This keeps your place on the list, but holds off on making the hold available to you until you are ready for them.

    1. Amelia yes I have read about others doing that but I can’t see the suspend on my reserves. I must look again but could be that our library system I am part of here in New Zealand is not quite so advanced! I have been envious of this ability.

      1. It could be they have the service turned off, most of the big companies do provide software world wide. I would suggest calling or stopping in to find out. I love the suspend feature. I just went though and put holds on all the titles for a book club and suspended them to come in 2 weeks before the meeting.
