The rules are simple: choose a book for each monthly theme; while you’re reading or when you’re finished, snap a picture and share on Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #ReadwithTheSnail. We’d love to hear what you think about it, too — the goal is to share books, authors, and stories with all the other readers out there. We hope this encourages you to try something new and expand your reading horizons. That’s what reading with The Snail has always been about!

If you complete all 12 months of the challenge, you’ll be eligible to win a $150 gift card to The Snail!
