Residents are being encouraged to get more out of books this year by taking part in Derbyshire County Council’s Adult Reading Challenge.

The challenge encourages readers aged 16 and over to read four books on different topics and jot down their thoughts about them in a leaflet. They can also chat with other participants about their chosen books on Twitter.

Deputy cabinet member for health and communities Councillor Ellie Wilcox said: “Our challenge offers readers a great guide to discovering new authors and types of books they may not have considered before. We also want to encourage people who may not think books are for them or who may not feel very confident about reading to have a go.” Visit your local library or visit for more information.
