Finished the 2015 Read Harder Challenge? We Have Presents!

Staff Writer

Rachel Manwill is an editor, writer, and professional nomad. Twice a year, she runs the #24in48 readathon, during which she does almost no reading. She's always looking for an excuse to recommend a book, whether you ask her for one or not. When she's not ranting about comma usage for her day job as a corporate editor, she's usually got an audiobook in her ears and a puppy in her lap. Blog: A Home Between Pages Twitter: @rachelmanwill

It’s September. Time for back-to-school and cozying up under a blanket with a good book and a cup of cocoa. It also means that you have a little over three short months until the very first Read Harder challenge ends.

So many (SO MANY) of you beautiful people have committed to completing the Read Harder challenge (even the romance task!) that we wanted to give you a reward. Actually, we’re giving you two of them!

When you’ve completed the challenge, send a photo of this checklist filled out with the titles you read for each task to to get a 30% discount on one purchase in the Book Riot store. (Can I recommend a Book Riot hoodie for the cold winter months?)

If you’re struggling with any of the Read Harder Challenge tasks, you can check out the dedicated Goodreads group or come to one of the Read Harder Book Groups which are launching this week in seven U.S. cities (and Glasgow!) to get suggestions from your fellow challengers.

Happy reading!
