BCPL launches monthly reading challenges for 2018

You know those photo challenges that periodically sweep through social media and require you to take and post a different picture every day? Here’s something much better: The Baltimore County Public Library is launching its #BWELLREAD program that includes monthly reading challenges. Think of it as a new year’s resolution for bibliophiles and reluctant readers alike, with hashtags.

Each month, participants choose their reading material based on the following monthly themes:

January: Read a book that was made into a movie
February: Read a book written by a person of color
March: Read a book with a one-word title
April: Read a memoir or biography about a person who doesn’t look like you
May: Read a book recommended by a friend
June: Read a book about music
July: Read a book set in a cold climate
August: Read a book that teaches you something new
September: Read a book you’ve always meant to read
October: Read a creepy book
November: Read a book you’ve heard nothing about
December: Read a short story


Participants then post a photo of themselves with the book they chose and the hashtag #BWELLREAD for a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card. Two posts will be randomly chosen for the prize on the last business day of each month.

Books, prizes, and a resolution we can actually keep. Count us in!
