After decades of librarianship and managing countless summer reading programs for children and winter reading programs for adults – all encouraging the pure enjoyment of reading (whatever form: paper page or tablet or headphones), I have discovered the phenomenon of reading challenges. While I have participated in any number of knitting challenges: 52 hats in one year, 12 shawls, themed cowls, etc., I never thought about reading challenges other than to set an annual Goodreads goal along with 2.6 million other Goodreads participants. But trust me they abound! I’ve listed a few resources I found inspiring but, if these are not to your liking, a simple Google search will yield 700 million more. Thanks to Swedish school librarian, Elin, for my introduction to 2021 reading challenges.
