Looking for the ultimate Reading Challenge for 2020? Join me for the 2020 reading challenge and read a book a week with the Booklist Queen!
Want to up your reading game in 2020? Then I have the ultimate goal for you – The Booklist Queen 2020 Reading Challenge.
Join thousands of others as we read a book a week in 2020. That’s right, this 2020 Reading Challenge has 52 different categories to expand your reading selection.
Last year when I launched my 2019 Reading Challenge, I was amazed at the warm response. I thought I would be the only one crazy enough to want to do a 52 book challenge, but I was so wrong. I was swamped by people wanting to join in. That’s when I realized I had found my people.
Did they all finish? Amazingly, so many have. I have loved hearing what books my readers have picked to complete their reading challenges.
Yet many didn’t finish, and that’s completely okay. When I created my 2020 Reading Challenge, I wanted it to be a bit aspirational. I want to push my readers to read more – whether that’s 12 books a year or 52. I want you to get out of your reading rut and try new genres.
Don’t like one of the categories in the 2020 Reading Challenge? Feel free to change it or skip it. Double count a book for multiple prompts. Do what you like to make my 2020 Reading Challenge your own.
As long as you have fun reading in 2020, I’ll be happy.

PRINTABLE READING CHALLENGE
While the bookmark is great for Pinterest, it’s way too small to write in your book selections. I would know because I witnessed my husband try it last year.
That’s why this year exclusively for my newsletter subscribers, I’ve created an awesome printable handout for the 2020 Reading Challenge that has space for you to write on it.
Not a subscriber yet? Just enter your email below to join the weekly newsletter. You’ll stay up to date on the reading challenge, my blog posts and provide exclusive content just for you. Every week I highlight one of the reading challenge prompts with book suggestions just for my favorite readers.
If the full 2020 reading challenge feels like to me, you can break it down into monthly segments. Feel free to do the Reading Challenge in order or skip around. If 52 books are too much, just take one of these monthly challenges and do it instead. That’s only 4 or 5 books to read in a year.
Need a little more challenge but not ready for the full 2020 reading challenge? Just pick one category from each month.
Personalize my 2020 Reading Challenge as much as you want. The goal is for you to read more and to have fun doing it!
