Challenge yourself to read authors from diverse backgrounds for at least 1200 minutes this January in the “Books Like Us” challenge sponsored by Simon & Schuster. Top-performing libraries and schools will earn rewards from Simon & Schuster, including book collections and virtual author visits; or try the “Winter Flurries” reading challenge where you can track all of your winter reading.

If there is a preschooler in your life, “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” is a perfect way to prepare them for a love of reading. Teens can join the “100 Books Before College” challenge. Ready, set, go read.
