2023 Summer Reading Challenge: The Classics

Welcome to my first reading challenge! This summer, take your reading to the next level by reading up to fifteen books this season.

I’ve made three levels to choose from, as you may have more or less time than another person to read.

If you don’t read often or don’t have much time to dedicate to reading, but are still interested in completing a reading challenge, level one is for you! In level one, you will be reading one book a month with a total of three books read by fall.

Level two is for the moderate reader—if you want a slight challenge, but don’t want to overwhelm yourself. You will be reading three books a month for a total of nine books read by August.

And, level three is the ultimate summer reading challenge! If you are an avid reader and enjoy a challenge, this one is for you. You will be reading five books a month with a total of fifteen books read!

As for what you’ll be reading, this challenge is all about the classics! I have compiled a huge list of books most people would consider as ‘classics’ and you can pick whichever you want. For the past two years, I have been trying to read more classics and have found so many new favorites. From To Kill a Mockingbird to Fahrenheit 451 and A Tale of Two Cities to The Catcher in the Rye, I’ve enjoyed diving into these books so much that I thought it would be a great theme for a reading challenge.

Let’s get started!

How To Start The Summer Reading Challenge

If you are ready to get started, here’s what you’ll need to do!

1. Pick the level that you would like to complete.

Choose something that is challenging, while still being realistic.

2. Sign up for my newsletter (you can unsubscribe at any time) to receive the list of classics, a tracker printable, and a book recap printable.

3. Choose the books you’d like to read.

Remember: Level One is one book a month. Level Two is three books a month. Level Three is five books a month.

Try to have your books ready to go so you don’t have to wait to get a book before you can read it. If you are looking to find super inexpensive books, I recommend using ThriftBooks. This is not sponsored, I literally love buying books through them. If you want more information on Thrift Books, I have a post here that goes into more detail.

You can print them out or use them digitally, whichever works for you!
