August is almost over, which means it’s time for the September prompts for the TBR Tackle Challenge! If you’re new to the TBR Tackle Challenge, it’s a reading challenge that I co-host with from.TBR.to.READ, theartsy_bookworm88, and hplreads. The goal of the challenge is to read the books that you already own and to “tackle your TBR.” Every month, we post five prompts to help you decide what books to read from your existing TBR. You can use the same book for multiple prompts, and you don’t have to pick books for all of the prompts if you don’t want to. The TBR Tackle Challenge started on Instagram, but we’re also on Twitter, Goodreads, and Storygraph.
If you have any questions about the TBR Tackle Challenge, please let me know!
Here are the prompts for September!
Starts with Q, R, or S
Once again, we’re carrying on with the alphabet this month and now we’re tackling “Q”, “R”, and “S”! Read a book that has a title that starts with either “Q”, “R”, or “S” for this prompt. It’s up to you how you treat titles that start with “The” or “A”.
Dark Blue on the Cover
September’s birthstone is sapphire. Read a book with some dark blue on the cover.
“And” in the Title
September 8th is National Ampersand Day! To celebrate this fun holiday, read a book with “and” in the title.
Set at School
In Ontario, which is where I’m located, September is back to school time for most people. To celebrate school starting up again, read a book that is set, or partially set, at school.
Character with a Unique Job
September 4th is Labour Day. To celebrate, read a book with a character that has a unique job. If you can’t find any characters with unique jobs, pick a book with a character who has a job you’d like to have.
If you have any questions about the prompts, please let me know! Happy TBR Tackling!
