Challenge Complete: Borrowed Book




One of the most interesting challenges, I joined this year was the Borrowed Book Challenge, hosted by Book'd Out. As the name makes clear, the challenge involved the reading of books borrowed (mainly) from libraries. Since I joined the challenge, half-way thru the year, I opted for the Borrower Be level which meant I had to read atleast 12 books. Well, I've been able to read and review 13 books in all. I am reading another book borrowed from the library but don't know whether I'll be able to finish it in the stipulated time.

Well, here are my 13:

First entry: Ammi: letter to a democratic mother

Though I have seen a lot of challenges that involve reading your own personal library, I am yet to see one that involves borrowing books from public/ institutional libraries. I hope Shelley hosts the challenge this year too as I'd love to participate in it once again.
