Great Reading Challenge 2018

Welcome to the Great Reading Challenge of 2018.

The RULES and GOALS of GRC 2018:

1.)    This reading challenge is open to adults 18+.

2.)    Please sign up at the Reference/Recommendations Desk or here.

3.)    Use this log to track your reading for the year.

4.)    Pick your books based on the categories or find categories to fit the books you were going to read anyway. Do it either way.

5.)    Read. A lot. Read books in lots of different categories.

6.)    You can listen to books on audio, read eBooks, read titles in graphic novel format, read middle grade and young adult titles too. Just make sure they are appropriately long, 100+ pages usually. Use your best judgment.

7.)    Speaking of your good judgment, we will not be picky about rule following. If you believe a certain book fits in a certain category, we will believe you. It is all about the reading, after all.

8.)    You set your own goals for the GRC and track your own books. I highly advise you make a copy or keep your “books read” listed in a second spot, in case this form gets up and walks away. Goodreads.com is a fun website to keep lists of books as well.

Reading goal levels are listed below:

BRONZE LEVEL: READ 18-29 BOOKS

SILVER LEVEL: READ 30-49 BOOKS

GOLD LEVEL: READ 50-79 BOOKS

PLATINUM LEVEL: READ 80-99 BOOKS

DIAMOND LEVEL: READ 100+ BOOKS

Come visit us at the Recommendations Desk or Reference Desk for more information, or call us at 563-589-4225.
