Welcome to the 2022 Monthly Motif Reading Challenge! We’re so excited to be back for another year of reading with you!
HOW IT WORKS
~ This is a monthly challenge that runs all year long from January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022.
~ A Motif (theme) is given for each month. Your task is to read 1 book that fits the motif for that month.
~ If you post what you’ve read to social media, use the hashtag #MonthlyMotifGXO.
~ If you are on Goodreads consider joining our the GXO Goodreads Reading Challenge Group. You can get book suggestions, plan your reading, do progress check-ins and meet other challenge participants.
