50/50 Book Quest

50/50 Book Quest

For this year’s 50/50 book challenge we are making a small change to the age categories. For 2024 we are simplifying to 2 divisions – the Chapter Book Challenge and the Book Quest Challenge. The Chapter Book Challenge will be for those 12 yrs old and younger with the goal of reading 30 books in 50 weeks in 30 different categories. The Book Quest Challenge will be for those who are 15 yrs old and older with the goal to read 50 books in 50 weeks that fit in 50 different categories. If you are 13 or 14 yrs old then you can choose which challenge to participate in this year. If you have any questions please ask library staff at registration, which begins January 2nd.

The 50/50 Book Quest is a challenge to read 50 books in 50 weeks in 50 categories. Following is a list of challenge rules:

  • Registration is limited to Marshall Public Library patrons who have a library card.
  • Finish and report completion by January 2, 2025. No late entries will be accepted.
  • Record the books you finish. Use the provided book log or Beanstack app to write down the title or be creative and create your own book log, scrapbook, or journal containing the same categories. This must be shown to a librarian at the conclusion of the challenge.
  • Books you read for other programs and book clubs may also count for 50/50 Book Quest as long as they fit into one of the categories and you finish by January 2, 2025.
  • You may count audiobooks for 50/50 Book Quest.
  • Participants who finish & report before the January 2, 2025 deadline may receive a 50/50 Book Quest Prize.
  • Prizes will not be ordered until the conclusion of the challenge. Only those who complete the challenge will get the prize. We hope to have all prizes available for pick up by March 1, 2025. MPL will not ship prizes.
