DO YOU STILL BORROW BOOKS FROM YOUR LIBRARY?
We as bloggers are very lucky to receive ARCs from publishers and digital platforms like Netgalley and Edelweiss, so is there really any point to getting books from a library now? I still do, I love when I reserve a book or even a new book in my own library and I'm the first to read, isn't that a great feeling. Right now I have 7 books out on loan as well as the many other books I have to read too, but I won't give up not borrowing them. I always have this thought 'do I have time for reading them?' or 'have I got to many to read?' Can you really have too many books though?! Hehe.
Just being in a library is like a sanctuary that I return too even on my days off. It brings me happiness and joy, being surrounded by books, and I always want to be the one to turn and say "shhh" to the people talking. I see kids from my years of working their growing up and how they love the library but yet people my age, there is such a drop in teenagers and young adults reading and using the library which is so sad. Do all of you in the UK or anywhere else you may have had something similar, the Summer Reading Challenges? I was the first person every time and now watching from behind the challenge is so different but also inspiring to me.I hope to change that!
Now the CHALLENGE part.... If you chose to accept it!?
I'm thinking of creating a challenge or lib-a-thon to have one/two weeks to try and read all of your borrowed books and tackle that TBR at the same time. Would you want to be a part of this? If so let me know in the comments.... If you have any borrowed books, grab and challenge yourself to finally read them. Continue the legacy of libraries through our blogs.
Do you still use your library? So do you borrow books still?
I'd love to know your thoughts...
