To help you meet this goal we will provide you with 12 prompts to inspire your book selection. All you need to do is to select a book that matches each challenge. We'll be happy to help if you are stuck for a particular challenge and will be providing suitable titles. Once you have one book read, tick off that challenge and get ready for the next! 

Westmeath Libraries will be offering a prize for one lucky reader at the end of the challenge, to enter the draw all you need to do is complete the challenge and return your card to the library by 6th Jan 2019.
