2021 Reading Challenge

2021 Reading Challenge

Have you ever found yourself reading the same type of book over and over again? Do you tend to read the same genre or author? If so, join our 2021 Reading Challenge today! We’ve put together a list of 18 prompts to push you out of your reading habits and help you find new books you may not have read otherwise. If you’re up to it, we also included six bonus prompts for an extra challenge.

The reading challenge rules are:

  • You can join the challenge at any time in the year
  • Any book read in 2021 counts
  • Each book can count toward one prompt, and one prompt only
  • eBooks and Audiobooks count
  • Prompts can be completed in any order

That’s it! Printed challenge forms can be found at the library’s front desk or downloaded here. Once you’ve completed all 18 prompts, bring your filled-out form to the library’s front desk for a swag bag of library goodies! If you have any questions or need recommendations, feel free to contact our library staff at 317-839-6602. You can also see staff’s favorite picks by using our May We Suggest service!

Most importantly, remember that this challenge is a fun way to branch out and find some new books you wouldn’t read otherwise. Whatever you can accomplish is a success! Happy reading!
