One of my local independent book stores is doing a reading challenge this year. My friends and I are participating, and I'm really excited to talk about the books we check off our challenge.
2019 Reading Challenge:
National Book Award Winner or Nominee
Book Set in or Written About Your Home State
Publisher's Weekly Bestseller from the 1970s
Pulitzer Prize Winner or Nominee
Book Published the Year You Were Born
Publisher's Weekly Bestseller from the 1980s
Hugo or Nebula Winner or Nominee
Christmas or Holiday Book
History of a Foreign Country
Book from the Science Section
Book from the Bestsellers Display
Book Set in or Written about Utah
Some of these are going to be real challenge to read. If you notice, they want the people doing the challenge to come into the store a lot. They probably want us to buy all these books, but I'm just going to get books from the library.
If you complete the challenge, you get a $50 gift card to the store.
