2020 Spring Reading Challenge Details
Did you hear?! We aren't just doing the 2020 Reading Challenges this year...we're also doing seasonal reading challenges! I just posted a video of all of the details, but I wanted to share here too for those that want to read about it instead or for you to reference later.
All of these items will be live in the new release section on Friday 2/14 at 10am CST
For each season, we're going to do a list of 15 book prompts and as you finish each prompt, you'll cover a book on a bookshelf. By the end of the season, you'll have a full color bookshelf!
As far as when the reading challenge officially starts--that's up to you! You can start on the first official day of spring according to the calendar or start at the beginning of March or whenever your weather feels like spring to you. It's totally up to you!
Here's how this will work:
- Each prompt on the challenge has a number that corresponds to it. Let's say for your first book, you decide to read a book with a yellow cover.
- You can write in the title of the book you read in the challenge table
- And then pick a book sticker that looks like the one that has the 1 on it in the empty shelf. Place that book sticker over the greyed out book labeled 1 on the shelf!
- Repeat until you fill up your shelf!
I think the best part about this is that the challenge will come in multiple sizes! Each one will contain a blank bookshelf, a table for the prompts (and a place to write your title), and the book stickers themselves.
The first one (shown above) is a note page sticker set designed for planners that are approx 7'' wide and 9'' tall. Planners that I know of that will use this size are: Erin Condren, Classic Happy Planner, Recollections. Others may include Yellow Paper House, Plum Paper Planner, etc.
The next size is a 4.75" x 6.75" set. This one will come with a cut out sticker/dashboard. This is created so that if you'd like, you can just hole punch it and place it in your planner BUT it is made with our sticker paper so you can also peel the backing off to put it in your planner a different way.
The next size is our small size. This one comes with one dashboard style stickers as well but these is sized to fit in a hobonichi weeks or print pression weeks. Other planners that this may fit in are personal size planners. The dashboard stickers themselves are 3.25" wide and 6.75" tall.
Finally, we have two of our separated version. This version has all of the elements of the challenge dashboard stickers--headers, bookshelf, and the challenge table but they are all separated so that you can arrange them how you like. This format is perfect for bullet journalers or those who would like to display their shelf in their own way.
We have a smaller size that is perfect for mini happy planners, b6 planners, etc with a bookshelf that is about 5'' wide.
We also have a larger size that is perfect for larger planners with a bookshelf that is 6.4" wide.
We will also have label stickers so that you can place in the weekly/monthly areas of your planner when you complete a prompt!
Now, let me show you these prompts. If you want an explanation for each one, just check out the video above. I explain them all within the first ten minutes of the video.
If you'd like, you can right click and save this image so that you can print it yourself.
One of the best parts of the seasonal reading challenges is that we're able to do a release of our bookshelf washi for each season as well as a release of all of our most popular reading stickers in a seasonal color palette!
There will be approximately 25 functional sheets being released so obviously, I can't show them all in a blog post. Many of them are recolors of our most popular designs but then we have a few new ones like the ones above as well!
We're also releasing a few new "separated" notes page kits so you can create bullet journal style planner layouts in your planner without having to draw each piece. Here's just a couple of them:
We're also planning to release a couple of things for the Shop Your Shelves challenge that will be taking place in the Creating & Co book club in March so make sure you look out for those in the new release section!
All of these items and more will be in the shop on Friday 2/14 at 10am CST! Make sure you are signed up for our email list so you will receive an email when these and any of our other new releases go live!
