2014 Book Bingo Challenge

 2014 Bingo Challenge-01

It's official: HAPPY NEW YEAR!! 2014 is going to be amazing, and not just because I'm getting married this year. Although I totally am. Eeeeek!!! :) It's also going to be full of great books!

I'm gearing up for 2014 by perusing the blogging community for fun reading challenges that will inspire me next year and encourage my reading habits. I've chosen two challenges to specifically participate in and this is the first.

I think this challenge is the most fun I've found amongst challenges so far and I'm soooo excited to participate! Anna and Kristilyn at Reading in Winter are hosting the 2014 Book Bingo Reading Challenge in which you read books and mark them off according to the following board:

BINGO Challenge 2014-01

Here are the rules (taken straight from their blog):
  1. Be awesome. If you’re not, this isn’t going to work.
  2. The challenge runs from January 1 to December 31, 2014.
  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. You can add your post to the Linky at the end of this 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 SQUARES are a little different this year — now you can use those squares to read ANY book you like of any genre! Woo!
  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 2014.
  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. Every 3 months I will post an update here and all participants can link to their own updates. An update post will go up April 1st, July 1st, October 1st, and December 31st.
  11. 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 #BookBingo2014 on Twitter!
