Are you (really) a bookworm? Let's find out!

Our Bookworm Challenge is a year-long challenge full of fun, reading and activities. It will challenge you to stick with your resolution to read throughout the year. It's also your chance to prove that you're a (true) bookworm, no matter your age.

This year's Bookworm Challenge takes a 12-month tour of the genres. The big goal is to read at least 80 hours (adults) or 50 hours (youth) and complete at least nine genre badges on your year-long journey.

Each month, a new genre badge becomes available to earn. If you miss a month or join late, you can always go back and complete previous badges. Of the 9 badges required for completion, you must earn the Fantasy, Mystery, Science Fiction, and Nonfiction badges. For the five remaining badges needed, you may choose whatever genre you like. Of course, you may complete all 12 badges! We'll never stop you from reading more 😄

Sign up now and happy reading, bookworms!
