Adult Reading Challenge


Are you ready to make 2021 something special?  Start by challenging yourself to read more.  Reading has been proven to improve memory, reduce stress and increase empathy as well as being a wonderful source of entertainment.  Whether you enjoy fiction, non-fiction, audiobooks or e-books, reading is an important and valuable tool for self-care.

With this in mind, the Mashpee Public Library has introduced an Adult Reading Challenge for the entire year of 2021.  Challenge yourself to read one book a month or 12 books this year.  

To get started, visit the Mashpee Public Library Beanstack page or download the Beanstack app. (Available for free on GooglePlay and at the App Store).  Register and start logging your books!

You are welcome to pick whichever books interest you, or, if you are looking for inspiration, try to read all of the genre suggestions listed under the activities tab.  Can you read one in every category? 

Read expansively.  Read abundantly.  Read for curiosity.  Read for education.  Read for fun. This is the year to make it happen!
