Pick a Card: A Tarot-Inspired Reading Challenge

 


Pick a Card: A Tarot-Inspired Reading Challenge

Welcome to "Pick a Card: A Tarot-Inspired Reading Challenge"! If you've ever found yourself enchanted by the mystique of tarot cards or lost in the world of books, this challenge is tailor-made for you. Here, we meld the magic of tarot with the wonder of literature, creating an extraordinary reading journey where each card holds the key to a captivating book.


The Magic of Tarot and Books:

Tarot cards have long been associated with uncovering hidden truths, guiding us through life's twists and turns, and sparking our inner intuition. Similarly, books have the power to transport us to far-off lands, ignite our imaginations, and reveal the deepest facets of our own souls. In this reading challenge, we fuse these two enchanting worlds, inviting you to embark on a unique adventure through the pages of literature.


How It Works:

Much like a tarot reading, you will choose a card – but instead of predicting your future, it will guide your literary exploration. We've created a set of reading prompts for each card you have. Your chosen card will lead you to a reading prompt, offering a delightful twist to your reading choices.

Lastly, "Pick a Card" is not just a reading challenge; it's an opportunity to connect with fellow book lovers who share your passion for both tarot and literature.
