Short Stack Reading Challenge

It is getting towards that time when I start scrambling to meet the reading challenges I have set myself for the year. There are so many great challenges out there, but one challenge that I have been unofficially setting myself in an attempt to meet my annual reading goal is to read as many short books as I can during the month of December.

This year, I am making it official.

Sometimes less is more, and to celebrate the smaller books I am launching the inaugural Short Stack Reading Challenge.


Very simple!

  1. The challenge runs from 1 December 2021 to 31 December 2021.
  2. The goal is to read as many novellas or short books as you can during that time.
  3. Each book you read earns you a pancake.
  4. Build your stack of pancakes from a short stack to a tall stack!
  5. Share your progress on social media with the hashtag #ShortStackReadingChallenge or leave a comment below!

Transparent pancake image files are available to download here. I look forward to seeing how high your pancake stacks get!

  2. This is the ideal challenge for people like me who didn’t manage to finish reading their novella’s in November for #NovNov and have unfinished goals for the year. I may well join!
