Summer Reads – 2019 Reading Challenge

INSPIRE YOUR WORLD WITH 24 BOOKS TO READ IN 2019

PPL’s Reading Challenge is a year-long opportunity to push yourself to explore new topics, formats, authors, and genres while having fun with your reading list. We’ve selected 24 book prompts and we challenge you to read one book from each category throughout the year. If you’re new to the challenge or have fallen behind a bit, summer is the perfect time to catch up. Start reading today!


WHEREVER YOU READ THIS SUMMER, READ WITH PPL.

It’s not a test or a competition – nobody except you is keeping score – so what have you got to lose? Sign up, download the list, and check off books as you go. Connect with Reader’s Advisory staff for book suggestions at (207) 871-1700 x705 or readersadvisory@portlandpubliclibrary.org – and check out these curated booklists for inspiration.

If you like talking about books and hearing about what other people are reading, join our Facebook Reading Challenge Group to connect with other Portland Readers and share your reading journey. You won’t want to miss our summer Facebook giveaways – join the group for a chance to win book swag every week during the summer! You can also share your progress throughout the year on Instagram or Twitter with #PPLreadingchallenge.
