2018 #WotNReadingChallenge

The prompts are set up by month to let you know when Word of the Nerd (read: your very favorite MLIS student) is going to have suggestion posts up on the site. Feel free to read the prompts in any order. 

About the 2018 #WotNReadingChallenge:

As you may be able to discern from the list, the 2018 #WotNReadingChallenge is an easy, low stakes challenge. To complete the challenge, one would have to read an average of one book per month for the entire year. Even if you aren’t a reader, this is not the biggest mountain to overcome and there is absolutely no pressure on you.

No one is going to judge you for reading the prompts “out of order.” No one is going to judge you if you only use graphic novels for this challenge (In fact, we designed it so you can do exactly that!). No one is going to judge you if you use audiobooks for most or all of the prompts. No one is going to judge you if you try to start the #WotNReadingChallenge and fail to complete it. All that we at WotN care about is that you try to read more
