For Reading Addicts Reading Challenge 2024

By December 29, 2023Cwts Club Book Club

Hello lovely Reading Addicts. Thank you all for your support in our book club during 2023.

We decided we needed to do something different again for 2024, so after a quick poll of our Book Club group one of them suggested we do something that ties in with each month of the year.

As usual, we will also run alongside an A-Z challenge with a couple of letters each month for you to pick from.

To make it a bit easier to plan (we know how some of you like to plan the year and/or read ahead) we’re going to list below the category and letters for each month.


Happy New Year. Read a new book, one published in the last 12 months.

For the A-Z the letters are A and M.


Happy Valentine’s Day. Read a book about love or a romance novel. Take a look at our blog for some ideas

A-Z letters are B and N.


Let’s celebrate St Patrick’s Day. Read a book by an Irish author or one set in Ireland.

A few ideas are listed here, The 20 greatest Irish authors of all time

A-Z letters are C and O.


“Better a witty fool than a foolish wit.” It’s April Fools’ Day. Read a comedy or a book written by a comedian.

10 books by UK Comedians  may give you some inspiration.
