2016 Reading Bingo Challenge


I mentioned in my 2015 Challenge Wrap Up that doing a bingo card in 3 months for my 2015 Jan-Mar Bingo Challenge was a little challenging for me (pun intended!). So this year I decided I wanted to try a year-long bingo card. Lucky for me, my dear friend Jessi @ Novel Heartbeat created her own bingo card this year. Check out her sign up page if you want to join us! Track my progress here on this page.

I’m not actually going to challenge myself to get a specific number of bingos, I just want to see how much of the board I can fill up by the end of the year. I would like to get a coverall, but I’m not sure if that’s too ambitious!
