Library 23 in 2023 Reading Challenge

My local library conducted the Library 23 in 2023 reading challenge. I enjoyed every minute of this fun challenge!

About the Library 23 in 2023 Reading Challenge

The Library 23 in 2023 Reading Challenge is a moderate-effort reading challenge comprising 23 reading tasks. Tasks focus primarily on reading books that fulfill different requirements related to book subjects, topics, and origin. Readers completing the challenge can experience a variety of genres and formats. Readers can also expect to experiment a bit and read outside their traditional scope.

Why I’m doing the challenge

I can’t resist an opportunity to participate in a program at my local library! The promise of a completion prize made the endeavor that much more enticing.

I also enjoyed the reading challenge tasks outlined in the challenge. I most enjoy reading challenge tasks that expand my reading horizons by prompting me to read books I may not normally read.

My reading strategy for the Library 23 in 2023 Reading Challenge

The challenge tasks were fairly easy for a diverse reader and the amount of books was also modest compared to my usual annual pace, so I felt confident I could finish the challenge successfully. Given these circumstances, I did not employ a specific strategy for completing the challenge. My primary challenge for 2023 was the PopSugar Reading Challenge 2023, so I mostly re-used books from that challenge to satisfy the Library 23 in 2023 Reading Challenge.

Unlike most reading challenges, though, I tasked myself with completing the task within the year—and I did!

My challenge progress

I completed the Library 23 in 2023 Reading Challenge in December, 2023!
