2022 Wandering Reader Challenge + Book-it-forward!!!

To commemorate the new blog, I’m creating the first annual Wandering Reader Challenge. In keeping with the theme here, the challenge will be all about reading and travel.

I’ll be forwarding some of my favorite books I’ve read and posted about recently to four lucky readers this year. Drawings for a print book giveaway each quarter of 2022! Every book you read for this challenge and post (in a regular post) on Instagram with #wrchallenge2022 gets you one entry. Don’t delete your posts. I might not count them all until the week of the drawing. Get an extra 2 entries by completing the challenge. You may complete it as many times as you want, but each book only counts for one category and one challenge. DM me on IG @awanderingreader when you complete the challenge. I’ll verify your completion by looking through your IG, so make sure you post every book, tag it #wrchallenge2022, and say in the caption which category it is for. Must reside in the US to enter. Winners will receive one of the books featured here or on my bookstagram in the past year. It could be an ARC or other gently used copy, but it will have been photographed and reviewed here previously. I’ll post available titles here before the end of each quarter.
