Can you believe it’s 2022 and the world is still in the grip of this awful Covid pandemic, on the upside, there’s always books! Thank you again to everyone who joined in and made last year’s challenge so much fun and without further ado here is our Reading Challenge for 2022.
As we have in the last couple of years we will once again have an inclusive challenge with the three options, Easy, Hard and Super Reader but this year’s monthly category will be “Read Through the Decades” and the alphabetical part will be by author’s name. Hopefully, this will mean that everyone can join in, whether you read one book a month or three or more!
January’s categories are:-
