I created this version of the 2016 Bingo Reading Challenge to suit my own tastes and desires, and to challenge myself somewhat as well.

You are more than welcome to join me if you are interested, the rules are pretty simple. Every time you read a book that fits into one of the categories on the Bingo card, you daub the spot. Only one book is allowed to daub one space, with the exception of the left hand column. You can daub the left hand column plus another spot, for example if you read a book by your favourite author while travelling, you can daub both spots. This challenge runs until the end of 2016.

Below is my Bingo card, I daubed two spots on the Bingo card in September which is the same number as what I did in August so it could be better but at least I managed to get a couple of spots completed.


Here’s the books that I finished reading in September:

  • Memoir: Puberty Blues by Kathy Lette and Gabrielle Carey
  • Most recently added to TBR pile: The Martian by Andy Weir

I’ve only reviewed one of the books so far and it has a link to the review in case you’re interested in reading about it.

There is one book that I’m reading for the challenge at the moment which is:

  • A story about mental illness: Welcome Home, Jellybean by Marlene Fanta Shyer

I actually finished reading this book yesterday, so it might seem like I’m off to a good start for October, but I think I need to pick up the number of books I’m reading for this challenge because I will still have 5-6 more spots to daub before the end of the year. Wish me luck!


Are you participating in any Bingo Reading Challenges this year? How are you going with yours?
