Hey, I’m Reading: Christmas Reading Challenge

One of the things I’ve wanted to make more of was reading challenges and I figured a Christmas reading challenge was the perfect place to start!

Usually for reading challenges, I try to pick a lot of different topics, but seeing as the Christmas season isn’t all that long, I’m keeping this one short with just six challenges.

I figure that is 1.5 books per week, which seems like a solid number. It’s not too many but just enough to be challenging.

If you read a lot and six isn’t enough for you, you could always do two in each category, and for the non-Christmas specific ones, you could do one Christmas book and one non-Christmas.

I’ve included suggestions for each prompt to help make the challenge a little easier if you’re not sure where to start. It doesn’t all have to be Christmas books or winter books but of course, that would be fitting for the season.

  • If you want to listen to some of these, consider trying Audible! You can get your first month free (one free book) plus tons of others they have for free.  Get that Audible deal here.
  • If you’re on more of a budget, try Scribd!  You can get your first month free there. You can read books and listen to audiobooks. It is unlimited (especially the reading) but if you listen to tons of new audiobooks you may be restricted after a few. I don’t listen to enough to confirm this, but I do use Scribd myself and like it a lot. Sign up for Scribd here!
  • Shop my collection of bookish goodies on Etsy! These aren’t my shop items, but other shops I’ve curated into a book-themed collection. Shop my Etsy bookish goodies here!
  • If you want to read more on your Kindle but don’t want to buy books, Kindle Unlimited is a wonderful option. It’s $9.99 a month but if you read a lot and like to read more than just new releases, it could be worth it. Get Kindle Unlimited here!
  • Get $5 off of $25 from BookOutlet! This is a great place to find new books for pretty cheap. They also have sales quite a bit, so keep an eye out for those. I tend to check here for books I want if they’re more expensive other places. They don’t have everything but they do have a lot. Shop BookOutlet here!
  • Thrift Books has become my go-to when I’m looking for a book and want it cheap. It’s great if you like buying used books. With this you can get a free book after spending $30!
  • Shop my book lists here! You can find every book list I have on Bookshop.org (except my monthly round-ups) and I add everything I can but they occasionally won’t have some. I do occasionally add extras though. If any lists are empty, they’ll be filled in shortly! Shop my bookshop.org book lists here.
