Will You Tackle The ‘2015 Read Harder’ Challenge?

By Maryann Yin Comment

Book Riot LogoWhat resolutions will you be making for the new year? The Book Riot team has issued the “2015 Read Harder Challenge.”

Bibliophiles are tasked with completing a series of 24 different tasks such as reading a book written by a person under the age of 25, reading a book that takes place in Asia, and reading a book that was originally published in another language. 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 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.” Will you be taking on this challenge?
