Book Only Logo
Today you can start signing up to participate in the first-ever, official Blydyn Square Books Reading Challenge for 2018: Read 18 Books for 2018.
Starting January 1 and ending December 31, 2018, we challenge you to read at least 18 books. The list below is only for suggestion–we’ll be thrilled if we can get most people to read ANY 18 books!
Sign up for the event and post your progress throughout next year. Anyone who manages to read 18 books will entered in a random drawing to win any of our books free PLUS an Amazon gift card (so you can keep reading even past 2018).
Hope you’ll join us!

Anything which gets more people reading is a winner. And I do love my library.

I was just thinking the same thing as EC. Challenges are a wonderful way to encourage folks to read.
Have a great one.
