Naperville Public Library Amazing Book Challenge

Join the Amazing Book Challenge!   

Each month a new reading theme will be announced to encourage readers to try new authors, genres, and topics.

Themed reading lists with suggested titles will be provided each month or you can choose your own title as long as it relates to the monthly theme.

Collect a button or magnet after finishing each theme to show off your reading versatility!


Do you read the same genre over and over?


Do you want to try something new but don't know where to start?


Are you interested in reading something new?



Frequently asked questions:

When can I join the program?

Any time!  Past themes and book lists will be available throughout the challenge for late starters to catch up. New Themes will be available on the first of the month.

Do I have to read books from the book lists?

No, the book lists are just suggestions. You can read any book that pertains to the theme.

What do I do when I'm done meeting the monthly challenge?

Log your book and then visit any NPL Adult Services desk to collect that month's button or magnet. When you finish the challenge you will have eleven fun buttons!

When will the challenge end?

You will be able to log the eleven themes until December 31, 2020.  Anyone who completes all eleven themes will be entered into a drawing.  The drawing will  occur in January 2021.
