So, I know I have a lot of reading challenges and redathons on board but I just cannot resist. I have heard a little bit on booktube about the Reddit’s Fantasy Bingo 2017. This is a Bingo Challenge focusing mainly on fantasy books. Sign me up now! This Bingo challenge will run from April 1st 2017 to March 31st 2018.

*2017 Bingo Period lasts from April 1st 2017 – end of day March 31st 2018

*You can’t use the same book or author more than once on the card. One square=one book/author.
*Re-reads: You can only use one square for a re-read–all other books must be first time reads. The point of bingo is to explore new grounds, so get out there and explore books you haven’t read before. 🙂
*The mods will assign ‘Reading Champion’ flair to anyone that completes the entire card by the end of the challenge.
*Anyone completing five squares in a row will be entered into a drawing at the end of the challenge for whatever prizes we can get together. Note: since I put this together I will exempt myself from winning any prizes.
*Not a hard rule, but I would encourage everyone to post about what you’re reading, progress, etc, in at least one of /u/MikeOfThePalace’s monthly book discussion threads. Let us know what you think of the books you’re reading! Also, if you’re looking for recommendations, the monthly threads are a goldmine for finding new reading material.
