2023 Winter Reading Challenge: FAQ

Do I have to do the challenges in order?

Nope. Feel free to tackle them in any order (or disorder) that suits you and only do as many as makes you happy.


When does the challenge end?

March 31st at midnight.


Who decides whether my submission counts?

We have librarians who evaluate submissions and communicate with participants. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, use the contact box. We are happy to listen and advise!


Does this book count?

When you think it does, use the "Why I chose this book?" section on the submission form to explain how it fits that particular challenge. Also check out the EXPLORE THE CHALLENGES and ADDITIONAL LINKS FOR FINDING A BOOK pages for guidance.


Is it my imagination or do I have to read more than one book for one challenge?

It is not your imagination! We have a two book challenge -- One book should have ta prologue at the beginning of the book and the other should have an epilogue at the end of it. Bonus points for reading two books with both a prologue and an epilogue. (Bonus points are just for the glory!)


Do the books have to come from the library?

Nope. Nope. No. The books can come from a friend, the store, the library or anywhere. It can be in any format (poetry, play, prose, graphic novel) or medium (electronic, audio, physical book).
