1. Illyria by Elizabeth Hand

Have you signed up for this challenge? What books are you planning on reading?


  1. I am hoping one of the libraries in the ILL system gets the new Templar Knight mystery by Maureen Ash. I checked recently to find it not available yet.

    I have a long list of books written down that I would like to read at some point, but I'm not sure of anything specific that I am hoping to accomplish for this challenge.

  2. My Google Reader just blew up with all the challenges you're doing this coming year! I am not sure I'll do any...I think my goal this year is to simply read at least two books a month. That's simple enough for me! Merry Christmas!

  3. Bookish Hobbit, Hehe I can just picture you checking back at the library website to see if they have the book in yet :P I do the same thing!

    Book Geek, Ha! Sorry about exploding your GR! (and there's more to come) :P That is a great goal. Good luck! Merry Christmas to you too!

  4. I, will for sure sign up for this one. I've found a lot of great books on the digital library.

  5. Gina, The digital library you use sounds so awesome! Ours looks decent, but I haven't tried it yet.

  6. I reeeeeeeeeeally want to host my own library challenge so maybe I will sign up for this one and still make my own!

    La Toya @ La Toya, literally.

  7. Totally doable :) I don't think there can be too many library challenges, but I may be biased. You know, working in a library and all :P

  8. @Small - Give the digital library a try. I was shocked to see how many newly released books I scored this year. My library allows me to do audio books and also read books on my kindle. I like that because on my kindle I use the text-to-speech function to listen while commuting to work. I have a very long drive. The library I'm associated with works in conjunction with I also use ebook fling on my kindle to get books loaned to me too.

  9. I definitely will, once I get an e-reader. Until then I have more than enough e-books through NetGalley. I try to keep them to a minimum because reading on my computer is not ideal. When I do get an e-reader (someday!) I'm going straight to you for all the e-book sources :)


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!
