2014 Book Bingo Reading Challenge

This is probably my favorite reading challenge in which I haven't participated yet, so this year, I'm doing it! It's the 2014 Book Bingo Reading Challenge hosted by Reading in Winter! In the spirit of fun and going-with-the-flow, I won't be deciding the books I read for this challenge before I read them. We'll just see what I end up with! This is my current bingo scorecard for the challenge:

TBR Pile: Divergent by Veronica Roth
My plan is to make a diagonal bingo from the lower left to the upper right corner. I'm not a fast reader, but if I complete my goal early I might expand it. Join me in playing Book Bingo in 2014, and don't forget to subscribe so you don't miss any fun, new book discoveries!

Update 4/19/14: Bingo! It's crazy--I already completed my diagonal! I thought of a bunch of different ways to follow-up and maximize the fun on this excursion. In the end, I thought it would be the most fun if I just read whatever I want from here on out and check off boxes when they apply. Next year, I'll challenge myself more, but this year is all about reading whatever I want and having a great time without the pressure! I hope you'll join me if you haven't already. It's really fun to cross off the boxes as you finish them.

  1. Congrats on completing your goal. I always over shoot so I'm going for the black out.
    Worth Reading It?

    1. Thanks! I'm probably going to try for black-out now just for fun. It looks like you've already completed a lot!
