The Reading Challenge - The FOLD

The Reading Challenge

Reading and listening recommendations that encourage booklovers to thoughtfully consider their reading lists and ask one important question: Who’s missing?

Are You Ready for the Challenge?

Each month, the FOLD features one of the challenges, providing suggested titles through a monthly blog.

For readers who may not read as many titles throughout the year, pick a few challenges that will enrich your reading list and your life.

As we say at the FOLD, diversity always takes more work…but it always reaps better results. So grab a book and get reading – and check back here for more.
