January Reading Challenge: "What Do You Recommend?"

Published by Lara Luck / December 31, 2019

Happy New Year! It’s time to try something new, different, and exciting. Hopefully this month’s reading challenge will help you do just that. Your challenge this month is to read a book recommended by someone else. It can be a friend, a family member, or even a complete stranger (like someone you see reading at the library). Just try not to ask someone who reads the same things you usually read. You can also ask them to try the reading challenge and recommend your own book.
