Read Harder in Action

In January I posted about Book Riot’s excellent Read Harder Challenge. Well, several of us at the library are so smitten with this idea we decided to pull the books in our collection that fit each category and put them on display for you!


You will find the full list to get you out of your comfort zone and into some great new genres and authors, as well as many suggested titles. I’ve listed a few of the categories and the book suggestions we pulled for the display.

If you like this concept and are interested in other lists, check out the other Challenges below.
