  1. Isn't it funny? I was looking for something that seemed library-ish so I was looking at all these stately books and then I found that cartoon. :)

  2. That cartoon is too cute! I can't believe how many challenges you are doing, the single one I'm doing now seems very lonely and not very challenging! Maybe I need to sign up for some more of these:)

  3. No audiobooks? Well, that's just no fun for me. That's how I plan to get half my library reading done!

  4. haha I can't believe I never go to the library. I'm awful. Mostly it's because I want to fill my shelves ;)

    Good luck with all your challenges!

  5. Jenny, I know! I may very well have bitten off more than I can chew. :P

    Kitten, You should check out Bewitched Bookworms' audiobook challenge then!

  6. Melissa, Thanks! I always read books from the library before buying them. Unless they're used, then I have zero self-control!

  7. This challenge would be perfect, I always get my books from the library. Then if I really love them, I buy them! Thanks for this, I entered :]

  8. Thanks for participating :) I cannot wait to see what you read.

  9. Laura, I do the same thing!

    Alice, thanks for hosting! This is a perfect challenge for me. :)

  10. Great post! I never thought of this challenge, but it does come in handy haha :).

    I'm a new follower btw!!

  11. I think I will participate in this one too. I love libraries! :)
    Best of luck with the challenge!

  12. amazing. i get most of my books from the library anyway. perfect challenge. where do you get that bar that says how many books you've read?

  13. Moonlight Gleam, It certainly does come in handy! Thank you for the follow. I hope you enjoy it here :)

    Misha, Me too! Thank you.

    Lazy Girl, It really is a perfect challenge. I'll write up a post on how to make the progress bar.

  14. PS: I read the comment you made on my Newbie Blog Hop JUST NOW! HAHA, thanks for offering to link our hops I just read your comment about a thousand years too late LOL.

  15. Haha, it happens! I think we're both running to the end of our hops, but maybe next year! :)

  16. Small,

    We certainly did sign up for a lot of challenges. I can't help that I'm a buttons whore. LOL

    This one looks good. I need to get to my local library more often. *sighs*

    And I definitely will be coming to you for suggestions on re-told fairy stories. Hope you don't mind. :D

    Happy New Year.

  17. Haha, I love the buttons too. I wouldn't be nearly as tempted without them! I don't mind at all. I just hope I don't flood you with a million suggestions! :P


It's all about friendly conversation here at Small Review :) I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Be sure to check back again because I do make every effort to reply to your comments here.

Because I am absolutely terrible about following through with blog awards, I can't in good conscience accept any more. Thank you very much for thinking of me though!
