Reading Challenge Categories: You Choose

Need some help deciding how to get out of your reading comfort zone to participate in the 2017 Book Challenge?

Here is a list of 22 different categories of books you can choose from. They are all listed on the Book Challenge form that you can pick up at the Library. It’s a great way to discover books you might otherwise not read.

  • A book recommended by a librarian
  • A book you can finish in a day
  • A book you’ve been meaning to read
  • A book you’ve already read once
  • A book chosen for you by your spouse, partner, sibling, child, or BFF
  • A Pulitzer Prize winner
  • A book with a color in the title
  • A book by an author who’s new to you
  • A book based on a true story (includes memoirs)
  • A book that became a movie
  • A book from your childhood
  • A book by a male author
  • A book by a female author
  • A book that is funny
  • A book based solely on its cover
  • A book of poetry
  • A book about a television show
  • A play
  • A book with magic
  • A graphic novel
  • A book with a one word title
