Let the Reading Begin! #RogersReads Reading Challenge 2021

It’s time to start reading! The #RogersReads Reading Challenge for 2021 starts now, and it’s a great way to challenge yourself and possibly win prizes at the same time!

The goal of #RogerReads is to challenge us to find new and surprising books that we may not have chosen on our own. Each year, we gather ideas and vote on them to find the best possible reading prompts to help us all “read outside the box” for the following year. Are you ready to see what this year’s challenges are?

#RogersReads Reading Challenges for 2021

  • –Read a book that makes you laugh.
  • –Read a book that is about food or has food in the title.
  • –Read a book set in or about space.
  • –Read a book that is about or based on mythology or folklore.
  • –Read a book whose author is known for something other than writing.
  • –Read a book, fiction or non-fiction, about nature.
  • –Read a fictional retelling of a historical event.
  • –Read a book you meant to read in 2020.
  • –Read a book with an animal on the cover.
  • –Read a book from your least favorite genre.
  • –Read a book that, for better or worse, you judged by its cover.
  • –Read a book with a body of water on the cover or in the title.

To register for the reading challenge, start by going to rpl.readsquared.com and creating a login and password. If you have an iOS or Android phone, you can also download the READsquared app to access your reading log.

Once you are registered, you can start recording the books you read online to be entered for prize drawings! If you complete one “mission” before the last day of each month, you will be entered to win one of our monthly prizes. If you complete all twelve by the end of the year, you will be entered for the grand prizes that we will give out at the very beginning of 2022.

If you have participated in our reading challenge in previous years, you may notice some changes in 2021. We are beginning in January and using a different website to log your progress, but the rest of the challenge should be quite familiar to you! Remember to record the books you read under the “missions” tab to fulfill the challenges.

Stay tuned to our social media pages and this blog for tips to help complete these challenges and tag us with #RogersReads so we can see how you are doing!

We are looking forward to a year full of challenging new reads with you!

Happy reading!
