It’s been a really long time since I played a game of Bingo. The last time I remember playing the game of B-I-N-G-O, I was probably in the sixth grade. Skip ahead 17 (or so) years to present day… I’m planning on playing bingo, but not the kind with someone yelling out numbers in a recreation hall, the kind that involves a variety of fun book suggestions.
You see, the brilliant team at Random House of Canada (cough, cough) created a Reading Bingo Card in an effort to get people reading a variety of books that shake up their regular reading tastes.
They’ve created a printable bingo card with 24 reading challenges and I, for one, am really looking forward to getting started!
It makes me anxious to start thinking about a poetry book selection, but I’ve still got 360 days to figure it out, so I’m not going to sweat it. The first selection I think I’m going to choose is in the G column… A Book “everyone” but you has read. I thought this would be the right place to start, because of my recent 12 Books I Should Have Read post, which has a couple of books on it that everyone and their dog has read, but me. Therefore, I’ve decided to start my #ReadingBingo challenge by picking up Jess Walter’s Beautiful Ruins, courtesy of Cory Beatty who hooked me up with a copy!
