My Book Bingo 2017

A Book Bingo is a take on the popular grid game (usually printed in 5×5 squares on a piece of paper) which is generally played with numbers; here numbers are substituted by names of books.

The idea behind a Book Bingo is to generate a reading list for the year wherein varied genres, authors, languages, etc can be explored in one year and each square gets a unique book prompt/clue.

A bingo board is normally of 5×5 square grid and total comes to 25. I have created a Bingo Board of 36 squares as I have a reading list of 40 books to read this year. (fingers crossed)




So my to be read list has been set in accordance to this board and looks something like this. You could read about my blog post on that here
