Do you have a reading goal this year? Do you struggle with finding your next read? Are you in a reading slump and looking for a way to get your reading going again? Don’t worry The Book Worm has you covered!
This year we are launching our very first Reading Challenge – #thebookwormhunt. The first step is to choose your personal reading goal. Whether it is 5 books or 50 we want you to join us for our reading scavenger hunt.
Each month we will post a new prompt. We want you to choose at least one of your monthly reads using that prompt. Books purchased from the store using #thebookwormhunt clues are eligible for a discount. Finish all 12 prompts with us and get an EXCLUSIVE Book Worm Challenge T-Shirt at the end of the challenge.
Book worm reading journals will be available for purchase to help you keep track during the year. We will also have suggestions based on some of the prompts on our Bookshop.org page. Also, follow us on Goodreads as we have created a 2022 #thebookwormhunt shelf. There will also be other items and incentives as we progress further into the year.
Let #thebookwormhunt begin
JANUARY – Stop by The Book Worm and pick a word from our “Word Machine”. Choose at least one book that has your word in the title as your read(s) for January. The more books you read using your word, the more successful you are on the hunt! There are also some coupons from our friends at Rooted Trading Co. in the machine as well.
FEBRUARY – Read a book from an author who has a different background than you. The book can be fiction or non-fiction, but we want you to read a book by someone different than you. We can all learn something from each other through literature.
MARCH – Read a book that has less than 300 pages.
APRIL – Read a book where the Chapters have titles, not numbers.
MAY – Read a book where the first sentence has no more than 10 words.
JUNE – Read a fictional or nonfictional book that highlights social issues
JULY – Read a book that has been or is being adapted into a TV show or movie.
AUGUST – Read a book that has a school setting (elementary-college)
SEPTEMBER – Read a banned or challenged book
OCTOBER – Read a murder mystery (can include cozy mystery)
NOVEMBER – As we celebrate our anniversary this month, read a book that has a bookstore theme and/or setting.
