Join the Mashpee Library, as well as libraries across the state, for this year’s Massachusetts Center for the Book Reading Challenge!  The Reading Challenge gives people of all ages a chance to set and meet the goal of reading a book each month, from a specific category, to share their experience within their reading community.   

The steps are simple, read a book that fits that month’s category.  When you have finished the book, visit www.massbook.org/readingchallenge and fill out a short form to share your reading experience.  At the end of the year, participants who complete the challenge will be entered into a drawing to win a tote bag full of books and other Massachusetts goodies!

The categories for the 2024 Reading Challenge are:

   January: A book you read years ago that you may feel different about now

   February: A book with a color in the title

   March: A book whose protagonist has a different culture or lifestyle from you

   April: A book about nature, the environment, or climate change

   May: A graphic novel

   June: A book that inspired a film or television series

   July: A book by an author born outside of the United States

   August: A book whose title starts with the same letter as your birthday month

   September: A debut book by a Massachusetts author

   October: A book about a time in history you’d like to know more about

   November: A relaxing, soul-soothing book

   December: A well-reviewed book in your least favorite genre

   If you are looking for book ideas or inspiration, stop by our second floor.  The Library will display a selection of books for that month’s category.  Good luck and happy reading!
