Massachusetts Center for the Book 2024 Reading Challenge

2024 Reading Challenge. January: A book you read years ago that you may feel differently about now February: A book with a color in the title March: A book whose protagonist has a different culture or lifestyle from you April: A book about nature, the environment, or climate change May: A graphic novel June: A book that inspired a film or television series July: A book by an author born outside of the United States August: A book whose title starts with the same letter as your birthday month September: A debut book by a Massachusetts author October: A book about a time in history you'd like to know more about November: A relaxing, soul-soothing book December: A well-reviewed book in your least favorite genre

How the challenge works:

  • Choose a book that fits the monthly challenge.
  • After you read, fill out this form to tell Mass Center for the Book about the book.
    • Using their submission manager, you will be able to log in and access the entries you’ve logged throughout the year.
    • Dedicated readers will be invited to a year-end celebration hosted by Mass Center for the Book.
    • If you read a book in each of the 12 months, you will be entered in a drawing to win 1 of 2 totes filled with books.
    • New this year: Mass Center for the Book will be drawing two names on the last day of each month to win a free book! Make sure you get those entries in before the end of the month.

We’ve added the Massachusetts Center for the Book 2024 Reading Challenge to Beanstack to help you keep track, but you don’t have to use Beanstack for this one. Just make sure you’re filling out the linked form to let them know what you’re reading each month. You can find more information at
