Reading Challenges

If you’re the sort of person that likes to set specific goals and reach them, we can help you do that in your reading life. Of course you can always set your own goals, but if you’re looking for pre-made challenges we can help you get started. We’ve created our own reading challenge this year, complete with draws for prizes for finishing the monthly book, and a draw for completing the whole year. Ours is geared towards the beginners of reading challenges, so don’t be intimidated, check it out!

There are also other forms of challenges, like read-a-thons! These challenge you to focus on reading for a specific amount of time. If you’d like a recommendation, we’re particularly fond of Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon. The bookly app also has a few that it runs throughout the year.
