Better Read Reading Challenges

Welcome to the Better Read Reading Challenges! To take part, just read a book that matches each of the categories listed in the challenge. (If you can find a book that matches more than one category, that’s allowed!) There are links to the current and previous challenges below. Do the latest one, or go back and revisit older challenges! 

We’ve suggested some titles you might like to try for each category. You can borrow the books we suggest from Swansea University Libraries. You can find your own books too, though – share your ideas using #suBetterRead.
