2013 Book Bingo Reading Challenge!
Well, I think it's pretty darn cool. ;)
Hosts: Anne from Creativity's Corner & Kristilyn from Reading In Winter
Link: Anne & Kristilyn's 2013 Book Bingo Reading Challenge
Time Frame: January 1 - December 31, 2013
Challenge: Read books and fill your BINGO board! [see below]
Just like any challenge, this ultimate goal of this challenge is to read books--lots of books! Instead of just keeping a list of books to satisfy some theme or number goal this challenge is designed in a Bingo board format, where each square on the board has a set of reading requirements that need to be met in order for you to cross out that square. To get Bingo, all you need to do is complete a whole column, row or diagonal.. just like the classic game. But Kristilyn and Anne know no one should EVER get stressed out over reading or reading challenges, so really, you can complete your Bingo board in a variety of patterns as you play along, including going for the Stamp of Awesome by blacking out the entire board!
The reading requirements on the Bingo board vary from reading books from your own TBR pile, reading multiple books in a series, reading new releases, reading books everyone else has read but you and re-reading books. Also, the center square is not a free space. To fill in that square, you need to read a book someone else in the challenge has read for the challenge. Sounds fun, right? Hopefully you're not confused and hopefully you want to join!
Here's what Anne and Kristilyn's 2013 Book Bingo Board looks like:
I'm going for the "the super reader" level [fill the entire board!] so I can get the Stamp of Awesome. It's probably not gonna happen--I honestly don't see myself re-reading 15 books to cross out the entire last column, but it'll be pretty darn fun trying to make it happen. Because Rule #1 is that YOU MUST HAVE FUN. And I'm all about THAT.
I'm not sure yet how I'm going to keep track of the books I'm reading for each square. I'll either keep tabs here in this post or make a new post just for my Bingo board.
Want to play?

Mariana Do it! It has been rewarding checking off those squares! I used PicMonkey.com to put little graphics on the squares to mark off boxes as I complete them. My first update is HERE. I've checked off a few boxes since then, so I'm psyched!ReplyDelete
