A Few Notes Regarding the Language Reading Challenge:
The challenge doesn’t have to focus on one language, if you are studying multiple languages (or have an interest in languages you’re not studying), feel free to go for books in or about those languages.
You are absolutely welcome to read books of any level. Graded readers, children’s books, academic books, or any other genre are acceptable for the challenges that require you to read in your target language(s). And for topics that indicate you read a children’s book, you can also explore YA (young adult).
You do not need to participate every month to be a part of this challenge. You can choose the months that align with your interests.
If you do not complete the book you take up in any one month of the challenge, that’s okay! You can still join in the conversation and share some of what you’ve learned from the sections of the book you were able to get through.
