Are you ready to read?

Running until Sunday 31 December 2017, it's fun and easy to get involved. All you need to do is borrow and read one book from each of the 12 categories, that's just over 1 book a month.

The categories are fun and flexible, so you'll be able to find something you enjoy or maybe you'll discover something new. There's no set reading list, so you choose the books that you want to read.
