Well here we are nearly at the end of 2023, another year over. Thank you to everyone who has made this year’s challenge our biggest and best yet. We’ve had so many people sharing their reads and making suggestions, it’s been amazing.
Get thinking about how you would like next year to look. If you have any ideas post a reply on Facebook.
As you know, we are keeping with an inclusive challenge again this year with the three options, Easy, Hard, and Super Reader. This year’s monthly category is, “Read the Rainbow”, a different colour will be picked each month, and you can choose to either read a book with that coloured cover or with the colour in the title. There will also be an alphabetical challenge, once again by author’s name.
Hopefully, this will mean that everyone can join in, whether you read one book a month or three or more!
December’s categories are:-
EASY – ALPHABETICAL CHALLENGE
Read a book by an author whose name begins with a W, X, Y or Z.
Here are just a few suggestions for each letter:
