I don´t know how long I am now having my library card, over ten years I guess, but one thing I do know: I am there as often as I can. The library was part of my life since my early childhood. Gosh, when I think of the years where everything was noticed on paper and the old Lady (don´t remember her name anymore) was sitting behind her desk and I was standing there with a huge pile of books to return or borrow new. Fond memories, that´s for sure.

This challenge was brought to my attention by another blogger I know from Goodreads and is hosted by Angela at Angel´s Guilty Pleasures.

And considering the number of books I´ve borrowed during 2018 from my local town library, I thought why not do this challenge in 2019? So, I am aiming for the Dewey Decimal who reads 12 books from the library and will see how things go from there. Maybe I am extending my goal during the upcoming year and end up with a totally different level or I will barely reach my original goal. Who knows …


The challenge will run from January 1, 2019, to December 31, 2019. You can join at any time.

  • Post a sign-up post on your blog or (dedicate a Goodreads shelf or LibraryThing) and link it in the linky here.  
  • The goal is to read at least twelve (12) books from the library. Twelve is the minimum, NO maximum limit. 
  • Any format (print, ebook, audio) will work for this challenge. But it MUST BE from your library to count.
  • Books can be any genre (fiction, nonfiction, romance, fantasy, mystery, thriller, horror, etc.).
  • Crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed, including re-reads. The goal is to support your local library and save money.
  • The host Angela at Angel´s Guilty Pleasure is offering a GIVEAWAY with this Challenge. Winner will be picked at the end of the year!! There are a few freebie entries just for signing up to join the challenge and then the main entries throughout the year will be the direct links to your book reviews. You will have until Jan. 4th, 2020 to enter your reviews in the Linky/Rafflecopter. Go here for all the details.
