The 2020 DCL Reading Challenge Is Here!

We're excited to embark on our fifth annual reading journey with you. We've got all-new challenge items to give your reading life a lift all year long.
As in years past, there are 12 fun categories—one for each month. And if one book satisfies more than one challenge item, you can mark both off your list! We hope you discover some amazing new books, authors, and maybe even genres to broaden your reading.
If you need ideas for books that satisfy the challenge items, ask a DCL staff member or revisit this page—we'll update it with staff picks and recommendations for each category. Once you've finished the challenge and submitted your completed form, you'll be entered into a prize drawing for DCL swag. You may also download a Reading Challenge kit.
Are you ready to get more out of your reading life?

Happy Reading!
