2022 Reading Challenge Prompts
It's your challenge, complete it your way.
We intentionally do not call these rules, as we feel passionately that reading should be enjoyable and not encumbered with do and don't lists. To that end, take these guidelines and the prompts and interpret them as you want.
Questions or feedback? We would love to hear from you. Message us on Facebook or Instagram, post in the Facebook group, or shoot us an email.
Cozy Mysteries only.
This is the only hard and fast rule. This challenge was built to expand our love within the Cozy genre so feel free to pull selections from all sub-genre's but the books must be a Cozy Mystery to count.
One Book Per Prompt
Unless you want to check off five prompts with the same book, then go for it. 😉 Your challenge your rules remember.
We love to see your posts on Instagram, read your comments, on Facebook, and see what books you've added to the prompts on Storygraph. It's so much more fun when everyone participates, and we Mods get bored when it's just us talking and posting.
