Let’s get this 2022 show on the road, huh?
Usually, Fun for Monday is all about book tags (which I love, as you know), but today I want to propose some book bingo fun.
I like book bingo. A lot. It’s a thing you may have learned about me. So to celebrate reaching my fifth blogiversary I’ve made a bingo card (ok, ok, I made it back in March of last year and then sat on it for nine months because I’m a massive scaredy-cat. Whatever. I’m sitting here right now typing with one hand because the other’s got its fingers-crossed that someone … anyone … will play along. Because I can get heroically anxious about pretty much anything).
But enough about me, this is about you, and whether you can be lured into doing another 2022 reading challenge (I’m anxious about that too).
This is a loosey goosey reading challenge that could easily be done alongside any number of other challenges without causing you a stack more reading stress, (not that I’m trying to convince you to give it a go or anything). Instead of stated categories, there are pictures for you to get as creative with as you like.
For example, let’s take that house (my favourite) on the bottom line, second from the left: It could suggest a haunted house to you, as it does to me, or it could suggest a domestic story; maybe you’ll look for a house on a book cover, or for the word ‘house’ in a title or in an author’s name. As long as you’re happy with the connection you’ve made between the image and the book you’ve picked, that’s good enough for me, no psychological analysis or judgement will be made, (although I’m thinking I should’ve called this the Rorshach Book Bingo for my own amusement – ha!)
Anyhow, I’d be pleased as punch if you decide to play along. Let me know in the comments if you’re going to so I can keep up with you over the year.
And whether you decide to take part or not, Happy Reading for 2022!
