2022 Build Your Library Reading Challenge

November 30, 2021

December is one of my favorite months, not just for the holiday season (although that is a big part of it).  I love making goals and planning out the new year. I love setting reading challenge goals for myself and I try to encourage my children to do the same.

For the past several years, we have been creating Build Your Library Reading Challenges. It’s a fun activity that my oldest daughter collaborates with me on. We love to brainstorm fun reading challenges that everyone in the family can do.

I know that both 2020 and 2021 were difficult for everyone. I have talked to so many people who struggled with reading these last two years. To be honest I’ve found reading to be difficult this last year, despite doing pretty well with the 2021 Build Your Library Reading Challenge. When I sat down to write the 2022 challenge, I decided to be adventurous!

The 2022 theme is “We’re Going On an Adventure!”


I can’t wait to dig into this year’s reading prompts! I’ve included prompts that offer you a chance to escape into all kinds of adventures, from fantasy to historical fiction, to non-fiction, and more! Let’s go on a literary adventure in 2022!

I’m looking forward to a great year of reading! I hope you will all come along and join in our reading adventure!

Below is the link to the PDF checklist for printing off and checking the boxes as you go along.
