2015 Challenge: Snagged at the Library

21/31 books
How do you make a progress bar?

Challenge Basics:  

Name: 2015 Snagged at the Library Challenge
Previous Hosts: Geeky Blogger's Book Blog
Starts: January 1, 2015
Ends: December 31, 2015
Eligible Books: Books from my Library CP Priority shelf that are not available elsewhere.

Why I'm Interested:  

I'm likely moving to the next town over in a few months and I'll probably lose access to my current local library. So, I want to try to read as many books from there as I can that I won't be able to get through any of my other library sources. This is less a challenge to achieve as it is a "snooze you lose" type of deal.

I have 51 books on my shelf, so it seems unlikely that I'll get to all of them. Still, I'd like to try as many as I can, or at least try them so I can decide if they're worth trying to buy a copy.

Books Completed:

14. House of Ivy and Sorrow by Natalie Whipple
13. Legacy by Susan Kay
12. Victoria Rebels by Carolyn Meyer

How do you make a progress bar?

This challenge has put in perspective the idea that, while yes I do have access too all these great libraries, there is a definite "use it or lose it" factor in play here. Libraries weed their shelves, I move. So, with that lesson in mind, I want to make an effort to consistently check out books from my libraries.
