#ReadingMyLibrary Challenge – Wrap up!

#ReadingMyLibrary Challenge

Sadly, the #ReadingMyLibrary Challenge is over. But I had a blast this month – saving so much money through my library, seeing what you guys were reading, doing the scavenger hunt. All of it was so much fun, and I hope you all enjoyed it too! I loved (almost) all of the books and comics I read this month, and I can’t believe how much money I saved! Let’s break it down, shall we? (prices listed are MSRP)

Mustache Baby Meets His Match by Bridget Heos – $16.99

The Skunk by Mac Barnett – $17.99
Power Down, Little Robot by Anna Staniszewski – $16.99
I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson (audiobook – still listening) – $29.99
The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury (still reading) – $17.99
Watchmen by Alan Moore (still reading) – $19.99

TOTAL SAVED: $375.71

THAT IS AWESOME! That is $375 I kept in my bank account this month, money I can use in the future on gas or…okay, more books. Whatever. But since I DNF’ed one of the books, I’m actually quite happy I didn’t spend money on that one or on Beautiful You, which I didn’t really like. I will say that I will eventually buy a copy of None of the Above because it was wonderful. Comics are SUPER expensive, so I’m glad I didn’t have to buy any of those either.

Favorite book read during the challenge: None of the Above by I.W. Gregorio; I am also LOVING I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson and I will probably buy it in physical format to reread it

Least favorite book read during the challenge: Obviously this one goes to The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows as I DNF’ed it

I’m so glad that Amy and I organized this challenge, because I’ve loved seeing how much you guys love and appreciate your libraries. I hope you all enjoyed this challenge.

Amy and I will be announcing the giveaway winners (hopefully) today on Twitter, so make sure you keep your eye out! It could be you. 🙂

  1. I am a huge library user, get 99% if my books there. I’m doing the 2015 Snagged at the Library challenge and have met the maximum goal they set of 50. I wish I was a book buyer so I could show a savings. Maybe I’ll figure out my annual savings anyway and use the money for a trip!

  2. This was such a fun challenge, Stefani! I really hope that you and Amy host it again. It got me to read so many things I wouldn’t have normally picked up. 🙂
    And $375?! That is a crazy amount of money saved! Also, I am in awe of how much you can read in a month. The life of a librarian. 😉

    • I’m lucky enough to be able to read in my down time at work, but I also make time when I’m not at work to read too. I have to for my mental well-being. 🙂 I’m so glad you enjoyed the challenge, Shaina!
