The Stay at Home Reading Challenge

At Ramonamead.com:

The idea for a mini-reading challenge, to occupy our minds during this weird time, came from my writing partner and fellow book lover Lisa. I took her idea and ran with it, my original thought being to give you prompts to read stuff you’d have lying around the house, a bookish scavenger hunt, if you will. But don’t hesitate to include items borrowed from the library, whether they’re physical or digital, or anything else you might buy online.
This can work retroactively too. If like me, you’ve already been home for two weeks, feel free to count anything you’ve read in that time!

The Stay at Home Reading Challenge

  1. Read a book on your shelves with less than 250 pages: Soul Surfer--Bethany Hamilton
  2. Read a children’s book: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone--J.K. Rowling 
  3. Listen to an audio book read by a celebrity: The Poets' Corner--John Lithgow
  4. Read a magazine from cover to cover (digital counts): Foundry, October 2019 Edition
  5. Read at least one chapter outside, on your patio, porch, deck, balcony, etc: Read one chapter outside on April 9
