Takaka Library: Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge

Thursday 1st July 2021-Thursday 30th June 2022

Here is the epic reading challenge for adults you have been waiting for!

Read authors with surnames A to Z in one year. Yes, that’s right, 26 authors in 52 weeks, an average of one book every 2 weeks. Think you can do it? Of course you can!

Simply pick up your Alphabet Soup reading log from Motueka, Murchison, Richmond or Takaka library, and start reading!

You don’t need to read authors A to Z in the order of the alphabet, but they do need to be books written for adults – either non-fiction or fiction.

There are regular prizes to keep you motivated, and the reading log is pretty snazzy, so you won’t mind having it around for a whole year.

Pick up your Alphabet Soup reading log any time from Thursday 1 July 2021.
