Winter Reading 2022: Read for a Better World
Online Reading Challenge for All Ages!

Winter Reading 2022 encourages readers of all ages to explore diversity, empathy, and action through literature. Our community has unlimited access to Lerner Publisher’s “Read for a Better World” themed ebooks for the month of January through this challenge’s activities!

To complete the challenge read a total of four hours or more by the end of January! Reading to someone or being read to counts too! Earn new Read for a Better World virtual badges!

Make sure you log every single minute you spend reading, no matter what you read - books, ebooks, graphic novels, comics, audiobooks, and magazines all count. Logging reading is easy using our reading challenge website or app!

Everyone who registers receives a packet of hot chocolate mix!
