Bookish Bingo: Winter 2017-18

Posted December 1, 2017 by Bekka in challenges / 29 Comments

It’s time for another round of Bookish Bingo! If you’re new here, Bookish Bingo is a reading challenge that spans one season. This round is winter 2017-18, so December, January, and February. Each season I create a new bingo card with 24 different categories. The object of the game is to get as many bingos as possible – and also to possibly expand your reading horizons. The only real rules are that you can only have one square per book, so no doubling up on challenges, and you can only count one DNF. All you need to do to play is comment down below!

Without any further ado, here is the card for December, January, and February!

As always, here are some examples for the categories. If you have any questions go ahead and comment or reach out on twitter.
