Reading Challenge 2023

The Year-Long Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger Hunt 2023

“What’s the Year-Long Scavenger Hunt, you ask? Well, it’s basically a bingo, but with a few differences. There are 31 prompts for the entire year — January 1, 2023 to December 31, 2023. You can choose to read 31 books where each book fits a different prompt or you can choose to find books that fit multiple prompts.” via Birdie’s Book Nook, via It’s The Bageler!
