#ReadingMyLibrary Challenge: Week Four Update!April 27, 2015
After my failure of a Week Three, I'm happy to report that Week Four was a wild success. I ended up finishing three whole library books this week!
Saturday's Readathon gave me an awesome boost; I got a full 5/6 of my reading done during the event.
@shainareads That's awesome!! #ReadingMyLibrary

By checking these out of the library instead of buying them, I saved $36.70 this week! Over the course of the challenge, I've saved a whopping $62.42. I was a regular patron of my library before this challenge started and very rarely bought books (and, when I do, not at sticker-price!), but I'd never thought to try to quantify the dollars I wasn't spending. It's been really satisfying!
This week, Stefani and Amy want to know how often I visit my library. I can be a bit of a sporadic visitor. Occasionally I'll go a couple of weeks without making a trip, but sometimes I'm there multiple times per week, especially when I'm hurting for some peace and quiet. Discovering that two of my libraries have e-book collections on Overdrive has definitely reduced the rate of my visits, but I don't see myself switching over to solely being a virtual library patron anytime soon.
Three more days left in the challenge! I'm hoping I can squeeze in one more library book before the end. Can I do it?! Tune in on Friday!
How often do you visit your library?
