A 12 Month Reading Challenge

For Teens & Adults

Sign up to read a book a month from each of our categories.  

Runs from January 2 - December 31, 2023

Here is How it Works:

  1. Sign up on the library’s Beanstack website or at the library. You can track your progress at wauclib.beanstack.org or pickup a paper log in person..
  2. Read twelve different themed books between 1/2—12/31. Need help finding a book to read? Curated reading lists are available below. Another way to find a title that you like is to check out what our Book Clubs are reading. 

  3. Collect all twelve badges. You can collect a badge on Beanstack or pick up your stickers at our adult service desks. Prizes will be available to any reader who completes all twelve after 5/1.

You can read books from the categories in any order you would like, at your own pace , however we will highlight a different set every month.  Look to the list on the right to see the other book recommendations.
