Welcome to the January check-in for the 2022 Book Awards Reading Challenge. This month’s task is to read a book (or books) that WON an award in JANUARY. Check in here or with our Goodreads group, or on Instagram with the hashtag #AwardReadingChallenge.
Awards that have been presented in January include
- The Costa Book Awards which recognizes books written by authors based in the UK and Ireland
- The American Library Association Awards (including the Youth Media Awards). This has also been presented in January – but also in February some years.
- * The AAAS/Subaru Prize for Excellence in Science Books (Children and Young Adults)
HOW IT WORKS

- Come back to our check-in here in the comments – leave a link and/or tell us which book(s) you read, the award and year it won.
