Book Bingo 2018

This year’s challenge (as well as a lofty but achievable target of 60 books this year) is to tick off all the boxes in my self-created Book Bingo! It’s mainly a challenge to get me to branch out a bit with the books I’m reading, and to read some of the books on my shelf that have been sitting around a while…

If you want to join in, leave me a comment below so I can see how you’re getting on (hopefully you won’t be able to shout BINGO before I do!)

P.S. You’re only allowed to use each book once, so plan carefully!
