2022 Reading Challenge
Welcome to the 2022 DCL Reading Challenge! Whether you’re a seasoned reading challenge pro or new to the game, you’ll find everything you need right here, including curated book lists for each challenge category below.
As in years past, there are 12 fun categories to read during the year—you choose the books to fit each category. You may also ask DCL staff for recommendations or check out the book lists below. And if one book fits more than one category, you can count it twice!
Once you’ve finished the challenge and submitted your completed form, you’ll be entered into our random prize drawing for a DCL swag bag.
