2018 Big Blue Marble Reading Challenge

Climb on board as we launch our first ever Reading Challenge!

We've come up with 26 challenges - book categories to intrigue, inspire, and entertain. There are no assigned titles, just categories of books and information to help you explore.

All year long we'll be hosting social gatherings for Challengees- chances to talk about your discoveries, trade ideas, share great new book loves, and earn your badges.

Ready to take the Challenge? Sign up now!
