Reading Bingo

While scrolling through my Facebook feed this week, I came across a completely fun and awesome reading activity for the new year.

Reading bingo!

Retreat by Random House posted a board that will help you branch out a bit and have (even more) fun while reading. I couldn't help but share this fun idea with all of you. Do you think you'll play along? Check out their post to print out the board.

Thanks for the awesome idea Random House Canada!
I've already started thinking of books that will help me fill the board:

A book that's been on your shelf for more than 5 years
Mansfield Park - Jane Austen or the Narnia series
A book by a Canadian author
Hidden - Catherine McKenzie (released in June!)
A book you (should have) read in high school
Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte (I'm surprised that I haven't read this one yet!)
A young adult novel
The Moon and More - Sarah Dessen (pretty much the only YA author I read...released in May!)
A book written by a celebrity
Life - Keith Richards (I recently read Mick Jagger so I want to see what Keith thought about things)
A book "everyone" but you has read
The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern (it's been on my shelf for ages and I haven't read it. Shame!)

Do you have any other recommendations for me?

Happy reading...and bingo playing! :)


  1. What a fun idea! I may just do this!

  2. fun. I do a few reading challenges during the year from a Goodreads group: Young Adult book club. I like the idea of reading a book that's been on your shelf for awhile. I have a few of those, although I don't know if any have been sitting there for five years!


Thanks for stopping by Books Etc.!
