Are you looking to read more diversely and travel via a good book or two? And, are you craving a low-key online community and manageable 2021 reading challenge?
Take our Uncorked Reading Challenge 2021 for book lovers and wanderlusters. This reading challenge has 12 themes — one for each month — with books to inspire travel, inspirational fiction and nonfiction, and diverse, international reads. Book suggestions will be both heavy and fluffy.
Read as much or as little as you like each month within the theme, skip a month if you need, and grab book ideas for each theme in our newsletter and Facebook Group, Uncorked Readers.
This year, we will also have quarterly group reads where we vote on a book to read and discuss the title in our Facebook group. This past fall, we read The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell.
Whenever you are on social media talking about the Uncorked Reading Challenge 2021, be sure to use the hashtag #UncorkedReading2021 and tag me @theuncorkedlibrarian (@theuncorklib on Twitter).

Reading Challenge Facebook Group
Last year, our readers asked for a private Facebook group to talk about what we were all reading each month. Along with our bi-weekly newsletter — filled with book lists and book suggestions — join our bookish online community for even more fabulous book recommendations from all of our readers.
Everyone and anyone is free to post in this group:
We’ll also talk about group reads, have polls for future reading, and just chat about everything books, booze, and travel.
If you didn’t participate last year, don’t forget to join the 2021 Reading Challenge mailing list. All 2020 members will automatically receive the 2021 printable Reading Challenge & bi-weekly book recs.
Happy 2021 Reading!
