Are you ready for our 2023 Reading Challenge?

If there’s one thing readers love, it’s a good challenge!  So join us in the 2023 Reading Challenge and explore the wonderful world of books from various genres.

What is the 2023 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 BiblioLifestyle 2023 Reading Challenge is — “Reading Across Genres,” — and we hope you’re ready for an exciting new way to explore different genres and dive into some truly captivating stories.

The 2023 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.

Readers can participate by selecting and reading one or more books from our prompts list and sharing their progress with us in the comments or via social media.  Are you up for the challenge?  Then, join us as we read across genres!
