Between the Lines
2022 Reading Challenge

What is the challenge?

The Between the Lines 2022 Reading Challenge is an annual challenge made up of 24 unique prompts. Match one book to each prompt for a total of 24 books throughout the year. The goal is to try new authors or genres, push ourselves to read more, read differently, and most importantly... to have fun!

How does it work?

Follow Charlotte County Libraries and History on Facebook if you would like periodic updates on the 2022 Reading Challenge, our recommendations, and to share what you're reading.

Using the list below, match one book to each of the 24 prompts (24 books total). Get as creative as you like when interpreting the prompts!

When January 1, 2022 rolls around, start reading!

Track your progress on the official challenge form. You can also pick one up at the library beginning in January. Once you've finished one of the prompts, check it off the list and make note of which title you've read and the date you finished the book.

Once the list is complete, bring it into any Charlotte County Library branch at any time in 2022. Everyone who completes the challenge will receive a prize, while supplies last!

Other helpful reminders: You can complete the list in any order. You can also interpret the prompts as narrowly or broadly as you'd like, using any format of reading and any author or genre that you feel fits the prompt.

This challenge is for ages 13+.
