The 2013 Book Bingo Reading Challenge

My blog buddy and fellow Canadian Kristilyn from Reading in Winter, along with Anne from Creativity's Corner are hosting the 2013 Book Bingo Reading Challenge. This is one of the most unique challenges I've seen and even though I said I wouldn't sign up for many challenges this year, I had to sign up for this one when I saw it.

Here are the details:
  1. Be awesome. If you’re not, this isn’t going to work.
  2. The challenge runs from January 1 to December 31, 2013.
  3. If you want to participate, you can join in any time of the year! Feel free to write up a blog post with the rules linking back to my and Anne’s blog in your sign-up post.
  4. If you read one book for the “1 book” in any category, you can’t change it later on when you read another book to “2 books.” Once a square is crossed off, it’s crossed off for good! (Feel free to print off the scoreboard to keep track!)
  5. Books read for one square are for that square ONLY and cannot be counted towards another category. This is all about reading ALL THE BOOKS.
  6. The FREE SQUARE isn’t really a free square. In order to cross it off, you must read a book by either:
    1. Reading a book picked by another participant, or
    2. Reading a book in a genre picked by another participant.
  7. You can start your board over again, but ONLY if you receive the stamp of awesome by completing a blackout. The “winners” of the challenge will be the ones who achieve the most winning combinations by the end of 2013.
  8. You can feel free to post your reading list for each category, though it’s not a requirement.
  9. Having a blog or writing reviews for books read is not required. So long as you want to have fun, you can participate!
  10. This isn’t a race, but don’t be afraid to rub your reads in the other player’s face. This will be seen as encouragement. Feel free to use the hashtag #2013BookBingo on Twitter!


Most of these should be fairly easy and will fit in with what I plan to read in 2013 anyway...the TBR ones should be the easiest since I have hundreds of books on my physical and virtual shelves. I wanted to read more books from series next year, and I already have a few re-reads in mind, so I think this is going to be a ton of fun!
