Just as the title says, I’m gonna attempt this booger. It started in April 1st and runs through March 31, 2018, so while a tad late, I think I’ll be okay.
/r/Fantasy is a subreddit on reddit and for the past however many years, they’ve been posting a bingo card for readers to complete. Here is the link to this year’s post, if you’d like to see it and the rules for it in their entirety. Otherwise, the card itself is as follows:
So my goal, first off, is to read books to fill this out that I currently own if I own one that fits the category. Meaning, the only ‘I bought this book for this tile’ exception I will make is if I physically don’t have a book that will work for it. This way I’m not really saying ‘Can’t buy books’ but I’m also prioritizing the ones I own, which I find difficult to maintain at times, unfortunately. I knew in the back of my mind that /r/Fantasy did this every year but I didn’t know when this year’s dates were until I saw the post from BrenhinesBooks on the subject. Gotta admit, I got a little overly-chipper when I came across it, haha. (Also thank you for posting for my eyeballs to see :D)
As of right now, I don’t know what I’m going to read for what aside from Mad Ship by Robin Hobb. Haven’t figured out where I’m putting it yet, though. It’ll be in there somewhere. I’m thinking I’ll do a ‘possible tbr’ post for this soon, once I peruse through my books and pick out a few potential titles for the tiles.
Wish me luck! And I hope you decide to participate, too! 😀 Also also, going through the comments of the reddit thread, somebody made a template for the challenge, allowing participants to add in the titles of the books they read into the squares. I’m usin’ it, yo.
