Sign up using the form on their Reading Challenge Page. Choose a book that fits the monthly challenge. After you read, fill out their form to tell them a little about the book. And that’s it!

If you read at least one book, you will be invited to a year-end celebration hosted by Mass Center for the Book. If you read a book in each of the 12 months, you will be entered in a drawing to win 1 of 2 totes filled with books and Massachusetts goodies.

Here on this page you can find a list for each month with books that may fit the challenge. You can read one of them, one that you have found, or stop by the library and see what other books we can find for you to read that fit the theme!
