Lancashire's 50 Books challenge

50 book challenge fortune teller

We're challenging Lancashire readers to read or listen to a book a week in 2018.

Following on from last year's challenge, we are keen to keep the conversation going. As before, we will be encouraging Lancashire readers to read, download or listen to a book every week.

There will be special promotions throughout the year offering new ideas to try or themes to link your reading to.

As before, we want to hear from you. What have you been reading? What did you think? Would you recommend it? Are you looking for inspiration?

We want all our book lovers across the county to share reviews and ratings on our catalogue.

Join the 50 Books challenge

Join in by reading and sharing your thoughts on all the books you read or listen to in 2018. You might not manage to complete 50 but why not challenge yourself to read every day and see how far you get. 

Our theme for Spring/Summer is our Desert Island Books. Share your early childhood reads and books that made you laugh out loud and those that inspired you.  See our Desert Island Reads

Follow the guide below to take part. Create Lists, write reviews and give star ratings to all the books you've read or listened to. 

You can also follow and share on Twitter using the hashtag #Lancs50books 

And post your comments and recommendations on our Facebook page @lancslibraries
