The 2020 Book Bingo Reading Challenge
I love book challenges and any kind of book lists. So, when the librarians at Canadian Bookworm posted this bingo, I decided I'll have to do that.
There are different ways to tackle this as explained on this page by Shinjini at Modern Gypsy:
Go for the full house, which means you commit to reading 25 books in 2020.
Pick your rows: Choose a few rows and commit to finishing those during the year.
You can choose two horizontal or two vertical rows, for example, which would mean a commitment to read 10 books during the year.
If you choose one horizontal and one vertical row of books, that gives you 9 books for the year.
Or choose a combination of horizontal, vertical and diagonal rows - choosing 3 rows means a commitment to reading 12-13 books in 2020.
As much as I would love to go for the full house, I have picked row 1 and 3 which means I want to read a book in each of the following categories:
Stephenson, Neal "Anathem" - 2008
Found in translation
Giordano, Paolo "The Solitude of Prime Numbers" (La solitudine dei numeri primi) - 2008
A book from last year's TBR
Bryson, Bill "The Body. A Guide for Occupants" - 2019
About the woman
Rand, Ayn "We the Living" - 1936
Judged by the cover
Tung, Debbie "Book Love" - 2019
A book by an author from a country you want to visit
Undset, Sigrid "Kristin Lavransdatter" (Kristin Lavransdatter) - 1920-22
In support of indie publishers
Higham, John "360 Degrees Longitude" - 2009
Owens, Delia "Where the Crawdads Sing" - 2018
A book by an author from your country
Gesthuysen, Anne "Mädelsabend" [Girls' Evening] - 2018
A book where an artist is the protagonist.
Khorsandi, Shappi "A Beginner's Guide to Acting English" - 2009
I will add the books I read so far as soon as I have read and reviewed them but I'd be very happy about suggestions for some of those categories. Thanks.
