2018 Book Bingo

01/01/2018      I enjoyed doing Book Bingo so much last year that I’ve made myself a new ‘card’ for this year too. So much more fun than reading for numbers.

Update: 3/3/2019 – Book Bingo 2018 = Achieved!

Here is everything I read for my 2018 challenge, with links to my posts. Yeah, I didn’t quite achieve it all within the year, but you know what? I still win (and get a lovely big Achievement Badge – ‘thank you bkfrgr’, ‘why you’re welcome bkfrgr’). Mwah ha ha ha!

Read the book then watch the movieAnnihilation by Jeff VanderMeer (I’ve not yet watched movie. I bought it, finally, only to find that our region one dvd player has died. My brother currently has it because he’s a tech wizard and will magic it onto a usb for me. I’m still counting this as achieved because I’m the boss of this bingo … it’s not the boss of me! Also, I got extra credit above. So there).

End of).
