A Bubbling Community of Readers – Why the 7-Day Reading Challenge Works for So Many People

I’m excited about the next seven days. I am rebuilding my reading habit, and I’ve invited other people to do so over Instagram, Twitter, and WordPress.

The 7-Day Reading challenge is attracting a variety of readers, and it is my hope that we will have a reading community that bubbles with enthusiasm.

 

Over the next week, I urge you to participate in the 7-Day Reading Challenge. Here are the rules:

  1. Read every day for 20 minutes, for seven days.
  2. Post about what you read on Instagram, Twitter, or your blog, using the hashtag #ReadWithCurtis.

Feel free to post this image on your blog or other social media for others to know about the event:

My Role in the Challenge

I am both hosting and participating in this event through my PaperPalacesBlog.com, Instagram, and Twitter. In addition to the two rules outlined above, I have offered tips and guidelines to use throughout the week.

I will post my own responses via Instagram, Twitter, and WordPress, including daily tasks, bonus challenges, polls, and questions for those of you who want a more interaction and more challenge.

You can connect with me via Instagram (@CurtisWritesBooks) and Twitter (@staghorncrown).

Here are the bonus themes for each day at a glance.

You can use them or completely ignore them. This reading challenge works for so many people because of its versatility. Make it your own!

  • Monday: How did you start your week of reading?
  • Tuesday: What has gone well so far? What’s next?
  • Wednesday: What resonates with you from your reading?
  • Thursday: The Strangest Thing You Have Read
  • Friday: Connect With Another Reader
  • Saturday: Binge Read or Taste Books
  • Sunday: Reconnect with Yourself. How did the challenge go?

Remember to use the hashtag #ReadWithCurtis so we can see what you are reading!


What can I do today?

Since it is the day before the challenge, there is no official prompt. However, if you are moved to write a post, snap a picture of a book, or share an article via Twitter, feel free to start early!

For example, here’s a picture of a stack of books I may choose from this week:

I hope to see you participating!
