Reading Ahead Challenge

What is Reading Ahead?

Reading Ahead is a national programme run by The Reading Agency. It takes place every year in public libraries, colleges, workplaces and prisons across the UK and reached over 30,000 people in 2018/19.

About the programme

Reading Ahead invites participants to pick six reads and record, rate and review them in a personal reading diary. After completing their diary they receive a certificate and can enter a national prize draw!

Reading Ahead isn't just about books - it's about newspapers, magazines and websites too. The aim is that participants challenge themselves to try something new and discover that reading can be a pleasure in the process. For more information please click the image below

  • If you've been using the lockdown period to catch up on reading, why not share it with us? Once you've read six items (books, articles, poems, the choice is yours) click the "Submit reading diary" link and tell us what you thought about them in our online diary. We will share some of the items which receive a 5-star review on this page.
