Book goals 2017 - we want to hear from you!

Book goals 2017 - we want to hear from you!

Do you want to do more reading this year? Or have you read a great book you think others should read? Be part of our 2017 book goals community

The first few days of January are a time for people to set new year’s resolutions, and for book lovers, that can be establishing #bookgoals or a TBR (to be read) list for the year ahead. If you’re searching for literary inspo, and/or would like to help fellow bookworms broaden their bookshelves, read on.

We’ve created a Book Goals card for all you bookworms to print out and keep, and mark your progress! 

But there’s more: to spread the love of reading, we want YOUR suggestions for each category, for an interactive, online collection of recommendations – and in the process you could win vouchers to help you reach your book goals.

For a chance to win HK$500 in book vouchers, send us one suggestion for at least three (and up to five) of the categories above. Include the book’s full name and author, and two or three sentences on why you would recommend it.

The writers of the Young Post team’s top 10 submissions will win the vouchers (so you can add to that TBR pile as soon as the Lunar New Year begins!).

To enter, send your recommendations, along with your name, age, and school, to, with “Book Goals” in the subject field.

Closing dates for entry is January 31.
