Every amazing year includes amazing books, movies, games & music. That is why we created two special Spark Sheets to help you meet your reading, viewing and listening goals. Use these sheets to make lists and track progress. Plan to reread old favorites or stretch into unchartered territory. Make a list of all the movies you have been meaning to watch and cross them off one by one. Whatever you decide, we have the tools to help you make the most of 2019.

New Year, New Goals

The start of a new year means new reading goals, and CPL's Spark Your Year workbook includes two special Spark Sheets to help you meet those goals. 

If you're like many people, you may want some guidance and encouragement (and book suggestions).  We've collected some of the most popular and engaging reading challenges to help you get started.  Check out the list below to find one that suits you. You can also track your books and set a reading goal on Goodreads
