2018 Reading Challenge



The purpose of the reading challenge is to help readers choose materials from outside of their typical reading “bubble” in order to find new literary likes and interests as well as to encourage discussion among participants.

The 2018 reading challenge will offer participants the option of reading one or two books each month chosen from either of the two challenge lists. You may choose either one book from one list or one book from each list per month, but may not choose both from the same list nor read ahead. Of course, you may read as many books as you like in any given month (we encourage that!), but they cannot be counted for challenge purposes. Happy reading!
