- A book you own, but haven't read
- A book that was made into a movie
- A "blind date" book from the library
- A book that was published this year
- A book recommended by HHS library staff
- A book with an orange cover
- A book that is older than you
- A nonfiction book
- A book that you chose only by the cover
- A book written by an author you've already read

Participants must also use the official reading log to track their reading. There will be a library celebration Monday, March 20th for all participants who complete the challenge, and there will be prizes :) Stop by the HHS library for more details!
