Today, I wanted to let you all know about the Con Sabor Reading Challenge. More than anything, this challenge is to share the love of Latinx books and their authors. I am grateful and honored to be cohosting with Dani, Nox and Natalia.
What is the Con Sabor Reading Challenge? It is a year long reading challenge, the main goal is to read as many books by Latinx authors as you can. The books can be backlist, ARCs and new/recent releases, the books can be in any format as well (ebook, audiobooks welcome!)
How does it work? How do I sign up? To join, share a tweet, blog post, photo or video with your TBR list and list of goals for this challenge including the hashtag #ConSaborReadingChallenge and also sign up in the link below, please share the sign up form so others can join us too. Any book you read in 2020 counts towards this challenge which officially ends on December 31. We also want this challenge to be fun and chill, you’re more than welcome to join in any time during the year, the sign up form will remain open the whole year.
Are there badges? Our main purpose is for everyone participating to read more Latinx books. We have badges set up so that you can track your progress (example below), you can also post these badges on your blog, twitter, anywhere you want. You can also click on the picture below to access the rest of the badges.
