Our Official 2019 Reading Challenge: We’re Challenging You to a Year of Epic Reads!

Join the Year of Epic Reads Challenge!

Are you ready to boldly go where no book nerd has ever gone before? We hope so, because we’re embarking on our first official Epic Reads reading challenge!

We want to read one book every week this year and absolutely crush our TBR piles, and we want you to read with us. You already know we’re an ambitiously bookish bunch, so we wanted to take that and turn it into something fun to do with all of you. Therefore, we’re officially starting a Facebook group for our Year of Epic Reads and a weekly newsletter that will have suggestions, discussions, and recommendations!

Awesome, right?! Before you get stressed, don’t worry. We won’t be choosing a book for everyone to read every week. We respect choice when it comes to a book nerd’s taste. Instead, we came up with 52 challenges to guide us throughout the year! These fit into different monthly and seasonal categories, so there are different ways you can join. Here’s what you should know:


The ‘Year of Epic Reads’ Reading Challenge

There are three different tracks you can read along with! Whether your goal is to read four books, twelve, or the full 52, we’re happy to have you along for the ride. Your first step is deciding which track you want to be on:

  1. Quarterly: If you want to read a new book every season.
  2. Monthly: If you want to read a new book every month.
  3. Weekly: If you want to read a new book every week.


Join the Official Facebook Group!

It’s where we’ll be spearheading conversations daily, with prompts, polls, giveaways, and more fun. We’ll be in the group as well, and we think it will be the perfect place for all Epic Readers and book nerds to come together and talk about all the amazing books they’re reading at any given time. The ongoing challenge will always be posted and pinned to the top of the group for easy access, and you’ll want to turn notifications on so you don’t lose track.


Subscribe to the ‘Year of Epic Reads’ Newsletter

Each week, we’ll be sending out a newsletter to everyone involved that includes updates on our own progress, discussions about the books read this week—taken from readers here, on social threads, and the group—recommendations for the next week’s challenge, and more! This will be a fun way to keep up with things on a more casual basis, since you can sit back and read the week’s highlights, and an easy reminder to stay motivated.


Don’t forget to have fun!

At the end of the day, this is about all of us reading together as a community and discussing the books that bring us together. We’re already looking forward to all the amazing Instagram Lives, Twitter chats, and Facebook Premieres that we’ll be getting to do with you guys. And if you find yourself falling behind, don’t worry about it! There are always more books.


Feel free to share on social!

If you’re keeping track on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram—or just want to shout to the world that you’re a part of this epic bookish undertaking, we have the badges for you! Tap through and save any of the below and share them on your own accounts. Don’t forget to tag us so we can swoop in there with a like and share of our own!
