Announcing the 2022 Diversity Reading Challenge

As we're writing 2022 in two months, I figured out it was time to announce the 2022 Diversity Challenge. I've hosted it in 2019 and 2021, and decided to host it next year too.


I’m not going to make any categories or levels for this challenge, as I want it to be a bit flexible. Read as many books as you feel like reading and yes, it can be children’s books, graphic novels, e-books, non-fiction, audio books, poetry and you-name-it. As it is a diversity reading challenge, it would be mean to exclude some types of reading materials, right?

Now, what is diversity you might ask? What I mean by diversity is, but not limited to;
  • People of colour/non-caucasian characters/authors
  • Native Americans and other indigenous people
  • LGBTQIA+
  • Authors/characters defining themselves as trans, intersex, genderfluid or similar
  • Refugees
  • Religious minorities
  • Mental illnesses/disorders
  • Neurodiversity (like ADD, Aspergers and autism)
  • Feminist themes/issues
  • Physical/mental disabilities
  • Characters/authors with chronic health issues
  • Characters/authors in wheelchairs
  • Characters/authors with cerebral palsy, ME, MS, etc.
  • Characters/authors with a learning disability
The challenge starts on January 1st 2022 and will end on December 31st 2022. Also, feel free to use books for whatever other challenges you might be participating in. I've often used the same book for several challenges myself, if a book fitted into more than one challenge.

Also, there's no need to sign up or anything, as I want to make this as hassle free as possible. That being said, if you're on Twitter or Instagram, feel free to use the hashtag #trykksvertediversity2022 for books you've read for the challenge, but it's not mandatory by any means.
