February 2017 library checkout

Hi,

I only read a few books this month and didn’t get too many out either, I think I had a nice ratio of books checked out to books read

January 2017 library checkout

Hi,

the last month of holiday, for me, which means I got a few books out while I still have time to read. I didn’t read as many as I thought I would have but I did read a few.

October and November library checkout 

Hi,

At first, I was quite shocked by the amount of books I’d mentioned in this post, but then I realised this was for both October and November. If you didn’t know I went on a break as I had my end of year exams during the last two months, which is why this post has a lot of books in it.

So lets get started!

library checkout: September 2016

Hi,

Last month I started the library checkout meme on my blog.

I think this is a really cool meme, it’s also helping me keep on top of the books I’ve checked out from the library

The Library – Part Two

Hey,

I started a ‘mini-series’ on my blog, about a month ago, all about the library. In my last post in this series, I talked about the cons of the library. If you’d like to go see that post you can click here to go straight to it.

As I’ve previously talked about the negatives it’s obvious that this post is going to be about the positives.

Please note I’m not trying to force anybody to use the library or shaming people for not using the library.  I am just sharing my opinion and if you don’t agree with this, you can leave a comment explaining why, please don’t be mean. 


 

The main thing I love about using the library is that it’s free. This is obviously something that many people love about the library as buying books can be expensive, especially if you live somewhere where there are few bookshops and buying books online doesn’t work in your favour (due to shipping prices). There are sites, such as Book Depository, which ship to a lot of different countries for free. This is super helpful because shipping can be ridiculous especially if you live outside the US and the UK.

Not only is the library free, but if you don’t enjoy the book you can just return it. I know that there are a few books that I’ve read that I really didn’t enjoy and if I’d bought it I would’ve felt like it was a waste of money. The fact that the library is free also takes away the bad feeling you get when you’ve brought a lot of books and haven’t read them. I have gotten about fifteen books out from the library before and not even read half of them, I cannot imagine how bad I would’ve felt if I had brought those books and had them sitting on my shelf still.

Personally, I find that I am more likely to read a book that I need to return to the library or a friend than if I own the book. Needing to return a book on time or just to be considerate will, not so much pressure but motivate me to read it more. A great example of this is the Legend trilogy, I brought this trilogy  over a year ago and I’ve read Legend and I started Prodigy in December, I still haven’t finished it. But I’ll read a library book as soon as I can because I know I won’t have it forever.


 

Even though I just gave and explained many positives about the library, here are some things I don’t like about the library, which you can always go check out in my previous post in this series.

Leave a comment telling me about how you feel about the library and your experience with libraries.
