2023 Reading Challenges Roundup

Linz the Bookworm Challenge

This challenge has five different levels, each containing 12 books, so if you complete all of them, you’ll have read 60 books this year!

Tim Challies Reading Challenge

Tim Challies actually didn’t create a new challenge for 2023, so this is a link to his 2022 reading challenge. But his lists are incredible and great for expanding what you read this year!

Read Your Bookshelf Challenge

The purpose of this challenge (and the next one) is to read a book off your bookshelf each month, following a certain prompt. While you may not have books that are able to meet every month’s theme, you will still be able to check some of them off!

The Unread Shelf Challenge

You’ll need to sign up for this free reading challenge, but it will give you help and resources to try to tackle all the books you already own but haven’t read.

G3 Reading Challenge

I’m thinking about doing this reading challenge this year. It has so many different ideas to read more to help readers in their Christian walk.

Intentional by Grace Reading Challenge

This reading challenge contains up to 52 books if you do the hardest plan, and it includes lots of ideas for how to make the most of your reading in 2023.
