Adult Reading Challenge

The 2024 Reading Challenge encourages you to expand your literary palate and try genres you may never otherwise read. It is meant to show you that things you are afraid of reading, you can be comfortable reading. Each month you will read or listen to a book that goes with a different theme. It is active from January 1st through December 31st. You can finish the challenge anytime during the year and do not have to go in order.

You can sign up for the 2024 Reading Challenge through Beanstack. You can track your progress on their website or through their app. Click here to learn more about Beanstack.
