Readers who sign up for Swoon Reads or download the app get unlimited access to the latest and greatest unpublished manuscripts. You can rate, comment on, and share your favorites.

Our Fall into Fall Readathon is here to help readers change gears from summer reading (outside! so many thrillers!) to cozy fall reading (inside! where’s my blanket! time to read Dickens I guess!)—welcome to Day Four! If you’re just joining us, get all the posts, giveaways, and tasks here.

Every day this week we’ll have one bookish task (and optional bonus tasks) designed to help you fall into fall reading, along with a giveaway, and a few posts to help you with the task. And for Day Four, our task is to get to the library and start checking out the books you put on your fall TBR yesterday. Don’t have a library card? Get one! Have fines? Pay them if you can. Prefer digital reading? Your library probably supports it—find out what app they use and download it. Libraries are essential community spaces in a democratic society, and they’ll close if we don’t support them. Plus, supporting libraries and bookstores aren’t mutually exclusive—if you love a book you read from the library, go buy it.

Bonus task: check out your library’s fall programming. Most libraries offer way more than just free books. There are play times, story hours, book clubs, talks and panels, community events, and more, all for free. Ask your librarian what cool bookish stuff you can attend this fall.

New to library usage? Check out these childhood faves that totally hold up. And here’s a handy comparison of the various library reading apps out there. Don’t forget to enter to win this library swag prize pack! 

That’s it for Day Four! Jot down the task in your Bullet Journal/OmniFocus/Todoist/task management system of choice, and get on it. There’s no sign up sheet, and no one here is checking up on you (as you are a grown adult person). Come back tomorrow for your final task, tips, and giveaway!
