2017 Reading Challenge

Fellow bibliophiles, start prepping your book lists, because the 2017 POPSUGAR reading challenge is here — with a new twist! For 2017’s challenge, there are 40 book prompts to help diversify and expand your reading in the new year, PLUS an “advanced” section with 12 books for hardcore readers who complete the challenge before the year is over. That’s a book a week for the overachievers out there!

What now? We’d suggest joining this awesome Goodreads group that is made up of almost 2,000 readers who participate in the POPSUGAR reading challenge with supportive discussions about the books they’ve read along the way and ideas for books that fit the prompts. You’ll also be able to track which books you’ve read and rate them on the site.
