Readers Dozen 2023!

Another year, another Readers Dozen! We’ve set new 12 monthly goals and challenge you to read a book that fits each goal. Complete all 12 and you’ll automatically win one of our yearly prizes; if you miss a month, you may still win in our second-chance drawing. Check this blog for links to the forms each month.


For January, your challenge is to read a classic you’ve never read before. Need ideas? Here are a few: Penguin’s 100 Must-Read Classics, Goodread’s Lists: Classic Literature, Waukegan Public Library: BBC’s 100 Books to Read Before You Die.

January’s form (complete it by Feb 7!):

Happy New Year’s Reading!


Readers Dozen – December 2022

It’s the last month of Readers Dozen 2022! Have you kept up this year? Even if you missed a month or two (or five), you can still enter our final drawing, and the more entries, the better your chances. So, we’re making this last challenge fairly easy¬† – all you have to do is read a book with a cover in your favorite color. It can be any genre, nonfiction or fiction, adult, young adult, graphic novel or audio.

Just make sure to post your entry here by January 7. Enjoy your read – and look for info about the 2023 challenge in a couple of weeks!
