In 2022 we had a yearlong reading adventure! 

Win prizes! Read more, read deeper, read bigger, read wider. Read funnier, more fantastical, more factual! Challenge yourself to broaden your bookshelf and read boldly where you’ve never read before!

2022 Quarter 4 winners were drawn at the end of January 2023.

2022 Quarter 4 prompts! We have 20 new prompts to inspire you (and the possibility of reading more from Q1 & Q2).

You can begin any time. Sign up now.
