Reading Challenge - Fun for All Ages
Looking for a way to spice up your library lifestyle? Why not try a Reading Challenge? You can do a Quick Pick or one that lasts the whole year through. Don’t limit yourself try them all. Mix and match – Read 100 Stories in Alphabetical order. Be creative. Be bold. Be daring! Intrigued? Read on, to see what might appeal to you…
100 Stories Challenge – Can you or your family read 100 stories in a year? Track your results on a homemade bookmark. Tall tales or short stories. A great time to try a series – there are 25 books in the Sue Grafton adult mystery set. Geronimo Stilton has a number of adventures for young readers.
LEGO Story Challenge – Start by sharing a good book. What engaged you most about it? Now get out those LEGO blocks and start building. Is it a maze from a fantasy book or is it a haunted house from the holiday collection? A new story, is a new opportunity, to build again, and again.
Never Have I Ever Challenge – Never have you ever read Science Fiction? They are not all space ships and robots, {but some of the best ones do have them). Never have you ever tried an eBook – ask the librarian how to sign up for your free access. Never noticed the Young Adult collection – many adventure movies have been made from these great reads. Make a list of 10 things that you have never tried and when that list is done, try 10 more!
Beat the Blues Challenge – This is just plain fun…find new authors (Delia Owens), revisit an past favourite author (Stephen King), meet new characters (Elvis Cole), try new topics (Clutter Cutters), or a new format (Books on CD); but the challenge is that they have to have a BLUE cover. Found all 5? Then start again with a new colour. You will be smiling in no time.
Alphabet Challenge – This can be done with book titles, book authors, book characters and even book subjects…Write them down so you don’t lose track. Watch out for those hard ones like “X”.
Scrabble Challenge – Draw your 7 Scrabble tiles – what is the best word made from those tiles? That is your new Reading Challenge – find a book based on that word. Challenge your friends. Meet again next month and see what your next Scrabble Challenge is.
Travel Challenge –Books Take You Places! See how far and how many places, you can go. Can you travel the world, one book at a time?
Ask the library staff for help and get them in on the fun. Share your progress and let them be the first to congratulate you on hitting your last milestone. Be part of a team, challenge each other or make it a personal challenge. Did you think of a challenge not listed here? Why not share it with the library staff? Who knows? The next challenge might be named after you…
