Book Riot's Read Harder Challenge 2024!

This is Book Riot's 10th year of hosting the Read Harder Challenge and they have a lot of fun stuff in store!

From their website -

"The challenge is made up of 24 tasks (click the link above to see this years prompts) that invite readers to explore formats, genres, and perspectives that might go beyond their reading comfort zones. How you approach Read Harder is up to you: you can read one book per task or count one book for multiple tasks. The point of the challenge isn’t to do the thing one particular way but to push yourself to diversify your TBR!"
