As I said in my last post, I’m going to do the 2016 Bookish Bingo challenge from The Girly Geek Blog. You can find the challenge here: http://the-girlygeek.blogspot.com.au/2016/01/2016bbchallenge.html
I’m not going to make it my mission to fill the card, but I will be trying for at least one bingo. I’ve just finished All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders, and that fills two squares. I’ll assume it counts since I finished it on the day I decided to do the challenge, so I’m on my way.
The challenge comes with a progress sheet, but I find that making a table in word is easier to update. Here is my card, with one mystery square filled in and my progress

I’d recommend this challenge to anyone who wants more motivation to read. Or who already reads a lot and wants to make a game of it.

Thanks. There are less challenges than last year’s one, but since I have other reading goals it’ll probably be harder. I’ll take all the luck I can get lol
