Hello again, my lovely readers. I am enjoying participating in the Virtual Adult Summer Reading Challenge so far. It’s a day, and a new mini challenge to participate in. I enjoy participating in these mini challenges as I like to think you get to know me better. Plus, I can visit fellow bloggers and learn more about them. It’s a great bonding exercise, I think. If you are participating, let me know! I would love to read about your progress and read your challenge answers. So, without further ado, here’s the next challenge.
*Show us your library card and/or your library!
*How often do you go to the library?
Honestly, I don’t go to my library often at all. I don’t really like my town’s library. The librarians aren’t very nice, or helpful. I like one or two of them. But, that’s it. I do like another town’s library; and I am trying to go there more often.
*What resources exist at your library?
In my small, one square mile town, not many. We do have a cool adult summer reading bingo I want to participate in.
*If You don’t go to the library, where do you get your books?
I haven’t bough books or gone anywhere really to get some because I have too.many.books. Yes, I have too many in my house that I have to read. Let’s say 100-200? Maybe closer to 200. I’m trying to donate some that I know I won’t read, but it’s hard to get rid of some.
How about you, dear readers. How often do you use your library card? Is it shiny, well loved, or lost?

This summer Octavia from Read. Sleep. Repeat. and Valerie from He Said Books or Me is sponsoring 2016 Virtual Adult Summer Reading Program (#VASRP) for the first time. This reading program/challenge seems as though it would be really fun. The topic for this year’s program is “Get Hooked on Reading” which is a great first tagline for a program like this. The reading levels are varied, and have, of course catchy titles.
Guppy Read 1 to 5 books
Minnow Read 6 to 10 books
Fishing Jig Read 11 to 16 books
Spin Bait Read 17 to 24 books
Book Worm (ha get it!) Read 25 or more books
I’m aiming for Spin Bait Read to (hopefully) Book Worm. I would like to read at least 25 books. My goal this year was 30 books in total; but I want to go over that to at least 52. Always have a reach goal. It makes for a great sense of accomplishment when you reach that bonus mark. It’s truly rewarding.
I also have a hefty list of books I would like to read soon; and for this month alone. I have ten books, at least, I want to read. I am a little behind on my goal, but I think I can catch up. I’m a fast reader.
I am really excited for this program as I miss my old summer reading program. I remember always succeeding, sometimes exceeding. Reading is truly a passion one should not give up on. You get so much out of it–if you really pay attention that is.
I hope you join in this amazing program/challenge. There will be fun prizes and challenges throughout. Keep an eye out for my posts on challenges one and two coming up shortly.
