The Christmas Mini-Challenge is back!

The Christmas Mini-Challenge is back!

We’re challenging YOU to read three books over the winter holidays

Add your books to your online profile to unlock a special Christmas Mini-Challenge badge and a secret video!

The Mini-Challenge starts on Monday 12 December and finishes on Friday 6 January

You can read any books you like – fact books, fiction, joke books, picture books, audio books – the choice is yours!

Log your books before the Mini-Challenge ends to unlock your rewards – just visit your profile page and click ‘Add a new book now’

If you don’t have a profile yet, click the ‘Join in’ button at the top of this page to get started

You’ll find loads of books to read at the library! Visit your local librarian to get some great reading recommendations for the Mini-Challenge, or give the Book Sorter a try!

Once you’ve read and logged three books, you’ll unlock the special Christmas Mini-Challenge badge

Go to your Codes and badges page to discover a special video message from Peter Bunzl!
