Library Books Read-a-thon June 9-16, 2014

Happy National Library Week!  Okay, well I think the official one was back in April (ALA Announcement) but who cares, it should always be Library Week! It's like Shark Week, only with books, and no water, but some books definitely have sharp teeth, don't they?  Let's celebrate with a read-a-thon, shall we? Of course we shall, because that's what we do around here! Reading, and 'thoning and the like.  Rachael @ Rachael Turns Pages is going to help us out with that by being our lovely hostess!

I have been super impressed at how my library system has advanced in recent years.  They are really keeping up with technology changes and now offering digital downloads of e-books and audiobooks, so I can go to the library without actually going there!  Although it is still fun to go there, since it's like free book shopping and who doesn't love that?!  I better not see any hands raised, I will ignore you. You love it, and we all know it!  So just come join us. ;)

This week I'll see if I can cross off a few books on my digital library wishlist.  I'll keep track of my progress here.

  1. Yay! I'm so excited that you decided to join. I will be talking about digital collections this week. I use mine once and a while. I'm excited for the readathon to start.

  3. I have been really impressed with the digital and audio book collection my library has gathered. It has definitely kept me in touch with the library in a way that I probably would not have been before. Enjoy your readathon.

    1. I agree 100%, until recently my MO was to just buy whatever book I was interested in because I didn't want to be tied to time limits that the library has. Since I can't share my digital books like I would my physical ones, or trade them in at used stores, that has adjusted my buying habits (probably for the better at least for my bank account!) and led me to discovering how the library has kept up.

  4. I have yet to read The Magnus Bane novella's, but they are supposed to come out as a bind up soon.

  5. I've been enjoying the read-a-thon this week -- it's been nice to have even more focus on the library. Of the 79 books that I've read this year, 52 of them have been borrowed. Most from the library, but a couple from the Kindle Owner's Lending Library. I hope you've been having fun -- I've been seeing your comments.
