14 August 2017 #ConradChallenge

Time goes quickly - the Conrad Festival opens in just ten weeks! It's the perfect moment to start intensive preparations for this year's event. If the summer holidays have made you lazy and you need extra motivation, the #ConradChallenge is here to help!

10 weeks | 5 books | 1 festival

What are the rules of the game? Pick five books you are going to read as part of the #ConradChallenge and get reading! We'd be delighted if you choose from books penned by guests of the Conrad Festival (any year!), but the choice is entirely up to you. You have until the first day of this year's festival (23 October 2017). To meet the challenge, you have two weeks to read each book. Make sure you join the event and share your choices and progress - and if you lose motivation, we'll support you! You can also evaluate, recommend and review your choices.

Not sure which books to pick? The organisers and friends of the Conrad Festival are here to help! Authors, booksellers, journalists and bloggers will be on hand to recommend their books. Follow us for inspirations!
