Watauga County Public Library Annual Reading Challenge
52 Reading Challenges

Join the 2018 Reading Challenge and broaden your horizons! 

Do you find that you gravitate toward the same genre when reading? Would you like to diversify your reading more and take a chance on other authors/areas that you normally would not read?

How about…
  • An Edgar Award Winner?
  • A Book With A Title (Or Has A Word In The Title) That Is A Palindrome?
  • A Cli-fi Book?

These are just a few of the categories for 2018! Want to participate? You can download a printable .pdf version of the categories at http://www.arlibrary.org/images/WatDocs/2018_Reading_Challenge_Form.pdf or you can pick one up in person at the library!

Each time you write a review, you will earn a ticket that can be used in a prize drawing at the end of the year!
