Welcome to the 2023 Monthly Key Word 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, 2023 to December 31, 2023.
~ Eight “key words” are given for each month. Your task is to read 1 book that includes one or more of the key words in the title that month.
~ Synonyms and different suffixes are allowed. For example, if the keyword is ‘Lake’ you may also use the words ‘Lakes’, ‘Water’, ‘Sea’, ‘Ocean’. If the keyword is ‘Run’ you may also use the words ‘Running’, ‘Ran’, ‘Runs’.
~ If you post what you’ve read to social media please use the hashtag #MonthlyKeyWordGXO.
