If you're thinking about improving your reading or would like to read more, then the Six Book Challenge is for you.
The Six Book Challenge invites you to pick six reads and record your reading in a diary in order to get a certificate. This year we've got top author and former SAS soldier Andy McNab supporting the scheme. Plus we've got special materials for rugby league fans supported by England International Jamie Jones-Buchanan. There's also the chance to enter a national prize draw to win some great prizes. Best of all, you can read anything you like - in print or online.

'Since doing the Six Book Challenge I have seen an improvement to my reading. I am on my fourth book and did not read much before. It has encouraged me to read more and my teacher says I have improved as well. I like to read to my children now, we help each other. I have been writing about the books in the reading diary. They are so good, even the sad ones.'

The Six Book Challenge helps get people into reading for pleasure, often for the first time
One in six adults struggles to read. The Six Book Challenge builds people’s reading confidence and literacy skills, improving their life chances. While Reading Groups for Everyone celebrates all the good things that happen when people come together to share reading and Mood-boosting Books recommends good reads for people who are anxious or depressed. Because everything changes when we read.
