We’ve completed six months of our 2023 Challenge, thank you so much to everyone who has joined in. Also thanks to everyone in our book group for sharing your reads. It’s not too late to join in and read along.
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 will be, “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!
July’s categories are:-
EASY – ALPHABETICAL CHALLENGE
Read a book by an author whose name begins with an M or an N.
Here are just a few suggestions for each letter:
Clare Mackintosh, Emily St John Mandel, Lucy Mangan, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Cormac McCarthy, Colleen McCullough, Madeline Miller.
Caleb Azuma Nelson, Jo Nesbo, Celeste Ng, Trevor Noah, Claire North, Graham Norton, Irene Nemirovsky, Jonathan Van Ness, Audrey Niffenegger.
HARD – MONTHLY CATEGORY CHALLENGE
Read a book with Black in the title or with a Black cover.
Here are a few suggestions from the members of The Cwts Club Discussion Group.

SUPER READER – READ HARDER CHALLENGE
Read a book by an author whose name begins with an M or an N (or both) and read a book with Black in the title or with a Black cover.
As with all our previous challenges, pick a book from our list, pop along to your local bookshop or library, order something online, or pick up something that’s already in your TBR pile.
