Annoncing the 2023 Diversity Reading Challenge

As it's 2023 in less than two months, I figured out it was time to annouce the 2023 Diversity Reading Challenge.


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 ADHD 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 2023 and will end on December 31st 2023. 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 #trykksvertediversity2023 for books you've read for the challenge, but it's not mandatory by any means.
