Readers! We hope you are continuing to enjoy your reading journey and the books along the way! As a reminder, the goal of the challenge is to encourage reading for pleasure and reading outside of your regular reading patterns.
BONUS: Send us an instagram post of a book you are reading with at least 4 hashtags and come collect a prize!

6. Book out of regular genres: Listening is an Act of Love by Dave Isay (radio interviews)
Short books: Want to read more, but have little time?
Book suggestions - short books 125 pages or less
This is a great way to take a risk on a genre that you usually don’t try. Please recommend other excellent short books!
Noticeably absent from this list are poetry, plays and graphic novels, which tend to be shorter than full length texts.
