2024 Build Your Library Reading Challenge

November 30, 2023

December has always been one of my favorite months. Of course, it’s the holiday season, but I also enjoy making goals and planning for 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 five 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. With Sarah living in South Korea, I had to go it alone this year, but I think I managed ok without her!

I’m proud to say that I completed the  2023 Build Your Library Reading Challenge ! I’ve never managed to complete every single prompt in a reading challenge before, but not only did I finish, I completed it before the end of the year!

But now, it’s time to unveil the 2024 Reading Challenge….drumroll please!

This year we are Reading Through History!


I can’t wait to dig into this year’s reading prompts! It’s no secret that I love history and historical fiction – that’s why I created History Book by Book! This year’s prompts will guide you to select a variety of literature, from non-fiction to diverse historical fiction, fantasy, and more! Let’s all be historians in 2024!

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.
