The 2019 Reading Challenges are here!  Are you struggling with what to read in the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Reading Challenge categories? We can help! Throughout the year, we will highlight several juvenile, YA, and adult fiction (or non-fiction) books in most of the categories.

These aren’t the only books we have available in each category but are ideas that can help you spark inspiration, help clarify the category, and (hopefully) make your decision easier.

We’re continuing our discussion of books with the category “A book with a ‘classics’ sticker.”


This category is a great excuse to spend some time at the library and search the shelves for your favorite classic book. Not sure what a “classics” sticker looks like or where to find it on a book? Look for a sticker on the spine of the book directly above the call number, as shown in the picture:
