Reading Challenges

The 2021 Reading Challenge

This challenge is perfect if you’re a voracious reader, struggling to read, or you haven’t read in years.

Last Updated on November 22, 2023 by BiblioLifestyle

Whether you’re a voracious reader and read close to one hundred books a year, or you are struggling to read one book per month, or you haven’t read in years.  The 2021 Reading Challenge is a surefire way to get started, get more out of your reading life, and enjoy what you’re reading.

What is the 2021 Reading Challenge all about?

The challenge is a fun and unique way to help you set your reading goals this year. We’ve created a challenge with a series of prompts that you can follow in chronological order or mix and match as you see fit.

The theme for The 2021 BiblioLifestyle Reading Challenge is — “Reading for Comfort and Connection,” — and we hope our carefully selected reading prompts will help you do just that.

The 2021 Reading Challenge has 12 prompts that will hopefully help you expand your reading, inspire your desire to read, or maybe even renew your interest in a book that has been sitting on your shelf for too long.

Do I have to complete all the reading challenge prompts?

I want you to view this challenge as aspirational.  Participants can choose one or all challenge prompts to work through in their own time.  Reading is a personal pursuit; what works for some readers doesn’t work for all.  Furthermore, I believe reading more books doesn’t mean you’re well-read.  So our focus here at BiblioLifestyle is always to encourage readers to focus on quality over quantity.

    I’m a mom of 3 kids and life is busy so this years my main goal is to read a minimum of 2 book a month.

    • Victoria Wood says:

      I love that you’re making plans to include reading as a goal for the new year. Two books a month is stellar, and if some months you only get to one or none at all, just remember it’s ok too. Happy Reading and Happy 2021!

    This year, I plan to read 70 books. From those books, I will choose novels that will have an academic foundation that will support my ability to enhance my community and foster the love of reading.

    • Victoria Wood says:

      I love how intentional you are in setting your reading goals! Plus the fact you’re also being thoughtful of your community is a huge plus. Happy reading and happy 2021!!!
