4 Fun Book Projects To Try This Winter

We love book projects here at In A Nutshell, so we’ve roundedup four great ones to try this winter, with this holiday time on our hands. A perfect opportunity to destress from all the festive rush, or you could use these to your advantage to get the whole family or friends together by making this a group project. Either way, hours will pass in no time with these book projects.

The book projects:

  • Book/ Reading Bucket List
  • DIY Bookmarks
  • Book/Reading Club
  • Book/Reading Challenge

Let’s get started!

Reading Bucket List

Skydiving, going to space, riding a camel; they all are the typical ingredients of someone’s bucket list, although some are more far-fetched than others. Ths is perfect for when you’re bored- make a list of book related things you want to do, and books you want to read. You’ll enjoy looking back on this later.

DIY Bookmarks (DIY Book Projects)

Whether you’re artsy or not, this task can be done by anyone. You’ll be amazed at the results!

Not only will this project prevent the annoying moments of searching for your lost page, you’ll always have one handy from your pile of bookmarks, ready made.

Bookmarks become your friend and companion when reading books, and no matter how worn and torn they become, they’ll always be dear to you. You might only want to have one, a memento you’ll treasure all your life, or you could make a bunch of them for different mood and styles of books for a refreshing change. Maybe you could even add some gorgeous quotes on them to uplift your mood.

Or, make some Christmassy ones with the family (or by yourself) to help you get in the festive mood!

Great present idea


Some more ideas:

Reading Club

Far from the planned and formal book clubs that take place,these are spontaneous, fun and personal. All it is is everyone grabbing a book at random times and reading for a certain amount of time. This is a great way to incorporate enough reading into your day without having to set aside a huge block of time, and without complaint. You could even make it into a game so that the first person to get their book wins, and could have prizes at the end of the week. This is a great ine to do with the family.

(Psst! Make sure you have enough books for everyone. Our post on that can help without breaking the bank.)

Reading Challenge

This type of challenge is a relaxing one, and not hard at all, unless you want to make it tough. This can be a great way to encourage children to read more often, although it’s perfect for adults and others too. It can include reading to pets, in a den or under the stars. Or, it might tell you to read a book starting with the first letter of your name, or a magasine with a red spine.

(Psst! There’s a lot of ideas on Pinterest, so have a look there. And while you’re at it, take a look at In A Nutshell’s Pinterest!)
