You’ll notice every week has 2 days of Reader’s Choice. This means that you can choose any retelling listed on the graphic to read a book about that fits in that week’s theme. It can be a repeat of a previous prompt, or a new one. Alternatively, you can also use these as “catch up” days to finish the prompts we have given you!
You can track your progress on social media in the following format, so others can hype you up to keep going!
