This January, we are asking all our readers, ages 0 to 109, to help us read 5,000 hours (300,000 minutes) as part of Beanstack’s Fourth Annual Winter Reading Challenge, sponsored by Simon & Schuster's Books Like Us. All reading counts for this challenge, but we encourage readers to choose books and stories from an array of diverse authors and topics. Readers will receive virtual badges for completing reading milestones and earn tickets to be entered into a prize drawing. The challenge starts January 1, 2021. Register at
