What resolutions will you be making for the new year? The Book Riot team has issued the “2016 Read Harder Challenge.”
Bibliophiles are tasked with completing a series of 24 different tasks such as reading a horror book, reading a book that is set in the Middle East, reading a nonfiction book about feminism and reading a book that has been adapted into a movie and deciding which is better. Participants can discuss their progress by sharing the #ReadHarder hashtag on social media and joining the “Read Harder Challenge” Goodreads group.
Here’s more about the challenge:
We encourage you to push yourself, to take advantage of this challenge as a way to explore topics or formats or genres that you otherwise wouldn’t try. But this isn’t a test. No one is keeping score and there are no points to post. We like books because they allow us to see the world from a new perspective, and sometimes we all need help to even know which perspectives to try out. That’s what this is – a perspective shift – but one for which you’ll only be accountable to yourself.
