HOW THIS READING CHALLENGE WORKS
🏆 THE GOAL: Try to accumulate the highest number of points you can during the calendar year. This will lead to a year of increased and diverse reading.
📚 HOW IT WORKS: Tailor your 2023 reading around one or more of the four challenges (monthly, format, themed, & flexible). You do not need to attempt all challenges, nor do you need to finish one before moving on to another.
💡 STRATEGY: Each category yields a different number of points, so if a book you read fits more than one category, fill it out in the spot yielding the most points. You can only check off a book you read in one challenge category.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I have to read e-books only?
No, three of the four challenges are format agnostic. Only in the “format” challenges are certain book types required (ex. “Read an audiobook”). You can complete any other challenge using a paper book, e-book, or audiobook.
Does a book have to be Christian to count?
No, except when specified. There are some categories such as “read a book by someone in [Christian denomination name],” which are explicitly Christian. However, there are many more categories which are open-ended, such as “an author’s debut book” or a “a book that will help you be a better worker.” For these types of categories, they count whether they were written by a Christian or non-Christian.
Can I fulfill challenges with fiction books?
Yes. While some themes may be impossible to fulfill with fiction, many were written broadly so that you can choose to fulfill it with a fiction book if desired (ex. a book that will make you laugh).
How long do I have to finish a book?
For three of the challenges (themed, format, flexible) you can start a new book anytime in 2023 and it will count towards your point total as long as you finish by Dec 31, 2023. The “monthly” challenges also do not need to be finished until year’s end, but those need to be STARTED in the corresponding month to count.
What is my high score good for?
Consider doing the challenge with a friend, spouse, or group. You can then challenge them as a means of accountability or as friendly competition. You can also challenge yourself by trying to outdo your score next year.

Starting November 1st we’re having a daily giveaway exclusive for our Facebook followers which will last the entire month. So if you’re not connected with us head on over to our page and click “like”.
Here is how the daily giveaway works: every day we share two posts (a link to the daily deals in the AM and a daily recap at night). If the two posts for any one day have a combined total of likes, shares, and/or comments that reach a specific number, that will unlock the giveaway for the day.
Here are the numbers and prizes:
- 100 likes, shares, or comments means we will gift one person who participated with an e-book of their choice that is currently active on Gospel eBooks.
- 250 likes, shares, or comments means we will gift one person who participated with an e-book of their choice on Amazon that is $10 or less.
- 500 likes, shares, or comments means we will gift three people who participated with an e-book of their choice on Amazon that is $10 or less.
So if our AM post receives 35 likes, 5 comments, 10 shares and our PM post (for the same day) receives 25 likes, 10 comments, 15 shares (100 total over 2 posts) then that will unlock the first giveaway and one person will receive an e-book of their choice from our website. So make sure you “like” us (and we recommend enabling notifications) and then in November make sure you interact every day by liking, commenting, and/or sharing.
1. If I take more than one action do I receive more than one entry?
Yes, if you like, share, and comment then you will receive one entry for each action taken. So you can have up to six entries per day.
NOTE: Spam comments will not be counted and will be deleted. Shares must be public (see first answer on link) to count as an entry.
2. Do I need to live in the United States to win a prize?
No, our prizes are open to anyone in the world.
3. Can I win a prize more than once?
Yes, you can win every day. So in November you have 30 chances to win.
4. How will I know if I win?
On the following day of a giveaway that is activated, we will tag you on Facebook on the winning post and ask you to email us to claim your prize. Prizes must be claimed within 2 weeks.
If you need further clarification on this promo send us an e-mail.
Gospel eBooks was the first website to provide alerts for free and discounted Christian e-books. We keep track of which titles are on sale and then post a fresh list of deals for you every morning. We’re here to save you time and money by pointing you to e-books that you actually want to read, at a fraction of the cost. To ensure you never miss another deal again (as many are on sale for just a day or two) we’d like to introduce you to the various ways you can subscribe to our deal alerts.
Before we explain the various ways you can get these alerts, in the table below you’ll find a helpful summary of the various methods we have and how they differ in frequency of notification.[table “1992” not found /]
HOW TO GET OUR ALERTS
Would you like to be alerted when our daily e-book deals are posted each morning? Subscribe below and you'll never miss a sale again.
You can receive our deal alerts via Facebook by “following” our page. We send out two posts per day (once in the morning and a re-cap post in the evening). Because of Facebook’s algorithm you need to follow one important step to ensure you see our posts every day. Head on over to our Facebook page and then click “follow”, then hover over the word “following” and click either “all on” (to get a Facebook notification when we post) and/or click “see first” (for us to show up in the top of your news feed). Then click the pencil icon to bring up the settings and make sure you select “posts” before clicking “done”.
Every morning and evening we post one tweet which links to all of the deals for the day. To receive these alerts via Twitter just follow us @gospelebooks.
The final way you can stay in touch with Gospel eBooks is to add our site to your bookmarks in your favorite browser. There are no notifications for this method so you’ll have to visit our site daily. Here are instructions for how to add bookmarks in Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
Not following @gospelebooks is like burning books. Seriously, if you're not following them just go put your book allowance in the shredder.

We hope you’ve been enjoying all the free & discount e-books that we share with you daily. We enjoy doing this as a service to you.
If you’re excited about your ever-expanding library that you’ve built for little to no money, we have a way for you to show others how they can do it too.
WE’D LIKE TO INVITE YOU TO
JOIN OUR STREET TEAM!
A street team is group of people who ‘hit the streets’ to let the public know about something awesome. We’re looking for people like you, to spread the word about Gospel eBooks. We have posters and business cards that we’d like to mail you for FREE so that you can get the word out about these amazing e-book deals.
[table “425” not found /]
Here are a few ways that you can use these materials:
Posters are great for putting up on bulletin boards. Consider putting one up at 1) your home church 2) churches you visit 3) bible college/seminary where you study 3) local libraries 4) your workplace 5) conferences.
Cards are great for handing out to people to let them know about the website. Give them to friends, family, co-workers, classmates and any person you know who reads (or needs to be reading) Kindle books. Consider leaving a stack of cards at information booths or other designated areas for promotional materials. If you give someone a Kindle for a gift, make sure to include a card.
