2022 Reading Challenges

The 2022 reading challenges are already starting to turn up. I'm not sure I'll be keeping a very thorough list this year — November and December are going to be really busy around here. But at least I can make a start. 

The list is in roughly alphabetical order,
with links to announcement/signup posts.
(Links will open in a new window.)

Notes and Caveats:

  • The challenges listed are, in general (it's not a strict rule), year-long challenges, open to everyone. I don't usually list read-a-thons, read-alongs, "personal" challenges, or challenges linked to special days or time periods.
  • This list is NOT meant to be a complete list of ALL the reading challenges available for 2022. It's mainly just challenges that seem attractive to me. And I'm not necessarily recommending any of these — just keeping track. (I live for list making.)
  • I will not be signing up for ALL these challenges! I'm sure I'll be joining in for a few, but definitely not all. (See the challenges I'm participating in HERE.)
  • In general I'm not a fan of the "check list" type of reading challenge with a bunch of set categories — so I'll list a few, but not every one of them. 
  • I don't do a lot of social media hanging out, so if a challenge is being hosted primarily on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram (etc.), you probably won't find it on this list.

For a more comprehensive, up-to-date list of 2022 Reading Challenges, you can check the Reading Challenge Addict website.

    1. Hi, Jamie. Thanks for pointing the way to this challenge. Actually, though, there are so many "check-list" type challenges out there like this one, I decided not to include them in this list. I sort of think of them as personal reading goals-lists which, while they are definitely valuable tools, tend to differ from individual to individual. I thought about including the POP-Sugar list, since it seems to be the most popular, but in the end just decided to do a separate listing of all the checklists -- I just never got around to it!

  14. I've been looking for the ones for 2017, but there aren't very many yet. I got all mine posted on my blog in October. I'm doing three new ones as well as the one I did this year. A list is up here:

  16. I am unsure how often you pick up messages at Goodreads. Even though Blogspot does not make commenting easy for Wordpress or rural internet and rejects them, if there is a captcha; I had better see about adding my 3/4 2019 groups that are ready.

  21. Hi Joy -- I'm hosting the European Reading Challenge again in 2021, for the 9th year now! Can you add it to your list? I'd appreciate the boost! It makes a nice crossover with other "read the globe" or "books in translation" challenges. And we'd love to see you back. Here's the link to the sign up page with more information: https://www.rosecityreader.com/p/2021-european-reading-challenge.html

  23. I keep a comprehensive (well, as best I can) list of challenges on my reading challenge blog: https://readyforareadingchallenge.blogspot.com/

    Like you, I'm not sure exactly which challenges I'll be signing up for this year. There are so many that it's hard to choose sometimes! Good luck with whatever ones you take part in.

Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
