Do you have a cozy reading corner you’ve been wanting to spend more time in? Do you have a group of friends who like to select books together? Maybe a little constraint helps you choose what to read next. Massachusetts Center for the Book has you covered with their 2024 Reading Challenge!
Choose a book that fits the monthly challenge. After you read, Go to their Submission Manager page and fill out the form there. And that’s it!
There are a few cool extra things too. If you’re a dedicated reader, you’ll 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. And, new this year, they’ll be drawing two names on the last day of each month to win a free book! Make sure you get those entries in before the end of the month.
Looking for others who are also participating in the challenge? This year the Mass Center of the Book has set up a 2024 Mass Reading Challenge Facebook Group too!!
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!
