Looking for some inspiration on reaching your reading goals in 2018? We have a Reading Challenge for you to stretch your wings and try some new types of books.

The beauty of this reading challenge is that YOU still get to choose your own books, it’s just that the challenge will point you in a direction with one specific requirement that will encourage you to search for something new. Hint – if you LOVE browsing for new books, this is going to up the ante for you and make that decision-making process even more fun! Here are a couple of examples from the list: a book set in your home state, a book with at least 400 pages, reread a book you loved as a child and a popular authors first book.
The worksheet includes a checklist so you can mark the item off when you have finished reading the book, and a long line to write down the title of the book and the author’s name.
If you are looking to find books online I’d like to suggest that you try out goodreads.com for easy access to a description of book, reader reviews, a rating system etc. You can even create your own account and keep track of the books that you are reading and quickly share your own reviews with friends! They also publish a newsletter with new books that you can probably pick up at your local library.
Let us know what your first challenge item will be and what book you are looking to start. I’m starting with “reread a book you loved as a child” and that would be The Boxcar Children by Gertrude Chandler Warner. As you proceed down your Reading Challenge list, please feel free to come back to this post and add to your progress. Enjoy a great read!
