Seasonal activities

The Winter Mini Challenge

Join the Winter Mini Challenge to find new book recommendations, take part in mini challenges, play games, and more.

This year, ‘Everyone is a Hero’! The Winter Mini Challenge is all about discovering heroes big and small, by reading brilliant books!

How to take part

Taking part in the Winter Mini Challenge is simple. All you have to do is read at least three books between Tuesday 1 December 2020 and Friday 15 January 2021.

Once you’ve read a book, add it to your online profile and write a review to let everyone know what you thought. Add three books or more to complete the Winter Mini Challenge and become a reading hero!

There’s a brand-new certificate and a limited-edition virtual badge for every reading hero who completes the Mini Challenge. We even have a handy Reading Record (PDF) for you to download, to help you keep track of your winter reads.

You can sign up and find more information about the challenge.
