Thank you so much to everyone who has joined in with our new challenge in 2023, lots of you in our book group have been 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.
