December has always been one of my favorite months. Or course the holiday season, but I also enjoy 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, with various degrees of success.
For the past four years, we have been creating Build Your Library Reading Challenges. It’s a fun activity that my oldest daughter and I collaborate on. We love to brainstorm fun reading challenges that everyone in the family can do. EVERY year she tries to get a “fish related” category included, and this year it actually fits!
I ended up doing pretty well completing the 2022 Build Your Library Reading Challenge (I currently sit with 7 prompts left to complete!). So I was excited to sit down to write the 2023 prompts. This year we decided to do a science and nature theme!
The 2023 theme is “Adventures in Science and Nature!”
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 science and nature adventures, from fantasy to historical fiction, to non-fiction and more! Let’s all be scientists in 2023!
I’m looking forward to a great year of reading! I hope you will all come along and join in our reading adventure!

I’m joining again.
I just found this through Jamie’s page and thought I would give it a go. Thanks for hosting
I have one prompt left to complete for the 2022 challenge (a story about a disaster – with an audiobook selected about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan), that I hope to finish next week! As someone that loves to travel to explore the various NPS sites around America (including our territories), I had so much fun filling the prompts! I have printed off next year’s challenge and am once again loving the theme!
I had lots of fun with the 2022 challenge, which I totally rocked, so I’m definitely in for the 2023 version! The prompts sound great. I’m excited.
I posted about the challenge on my reading challenge database blog to help spread the word:
