Lock down Reading Challenge – 4+ weeks

Four weeks can feel like a long time if you don’t have anything planned. For those of you who enjoy a challenge or are just looking for a bit of structure we have a reading challenge for you – based on four books per week.

There are five challenges (one for each week) and three separate sheets for children, see how many you can get through before our lock down is finished. If people don’t stay at home and keep safe, we could be in lock down for much longer. If that happens (and we hope it won’t) then we will add more challenges for you.

Or you might decide to do your own reading challenges. We would love to hear how you went by commenting on the blog or our facebook page.

Week 2:

  1. A book in your ‘too read’ pile for over a year
  2. A book in a genre you wouldn’t normally read
  3. A book that’ll make you cry
  4. A book with a one word title
  5. For children – we have a Challenge sheet to print or download for fun reading challenges – see the another 2 at the bottom of this page.

Please welcome Antony Millen to the hot seat

Kia ora,

Please welcome our latest victim guest, Antony Millen. On the metal plate suspended above that puddle by wires is a chocolate fish. Behave and the delicious pink marshmallow fish covered in chocolate won’t end up a goopy mess on the floor.

In the event of an earthquake/zombie plague/or random occupation – you’ll find emergency procedures taped to the bottom of your seat. Yes, just like a flotation device. You’ll also find a Glock 17 with a full magazine.
Remember you cannot reason with zombies and it’s a head shot every time.

Helping us help you

Good morning authors and readers,

Hope you’re enjoying this rather beautiful crisp winter weather. It’s much easier to cope with winter when it isn’t raining and blowing a gale!

Now to the point of this blog post …

We do have a request, instead of buying a coffee today (or tomorrow) would you please donate that money to our give-a-little page and help us keep our doors open? Seriously every dollar will help.

Here’s the link: Writers Plot Give a Little

We truly appreciate your help.
And would very much like to continue providing support for Kiwi authors.
