I am a big fan of reading challenges. Every year I do the Goodreads Challenge, where you set a goal for how many books you want to read that year, and it keeps track for you. I’ve already completed my goal for that challenge this year, so I went searching for a new reading goal. The website Book Riot, a great website all about books, has their own challenge called the Read Harder Challenge. It lists 24 reading goals for people to check off. I really like their reading goal choices, because if you try to reach all 24 goals, you’ve read pretty widely in terms of genre, time, culture, and types of publishing. Below you’ll find the complete list from Book Riot, along with suggested reads for each category. Maybe you can use some of these (either the goals or the books) as suggestions for when you pick up your next great read!
