12 Months 12 Books

Join the Massachusetts Center for the Book 2024 Reading Challenge

  • How the challenge works:

  • Choose a book that fits the monthly challenge.

  • After you read, fill out this form to tell us about the book.

    • Using our NEW submission manager, you will be able to log in and access the entries you’ve logged throughout the year.

    • Dedicated readers will be invited to a year-end celebration hosted by Mass Center for the Book.

    • If you read a book in each of the 12 months, you will be entered in a drawing to win 1 of 2 totes filled with books.

    • New this year! We will be drawing two names on the last day of each month to win a free book! Make sure you get those entries in before the end of the month.
