The PRC has a list of books for each Challenge level, catering for students in Years K-2, Years 3-4, Years 5-6 and Years 7-9. To complete the Challenge, students can read books at or above their Challenge level. The booklists comprise 22 categories (genres), including fiction, non-fiction, picture books, sports fiction, science fiction, poetry and include a wide variety of Australian authors.


On the 7-9 booklist, a title marked Star indicates that the book is also on the 5-6 booklist. This means that the book is an easier read for Years 7-9. So, students doing the 7-9 Challenge can read books from both the 5-6 and 7-9 booklists.


Books marked with Hash contain mature themes, more difficult language, and are more suited to mature, more competent readers. The annotation will indicate that the book is usually read by students in Years 9, 10 and above. 


A book's annotation will also provide helpful information about a book's content and its characters, and may indicate if the story is scary, sad, funny or mysterious.


New books for the next year's Challenge are added to the website each November.
