WOJ Book Bingo!

Last year, I set a New Year’s goal to read (and finish) 2 books each month of the year.  I did it, but it seemed to encourage in me a certain kind of rigidity.  So this year, I was thinking about doing something similar, but structured differently.

2013 book list

I saw a fun reading Bingo game here and thought I would modify it a little for our wacky WOJ readers.  See what you think… and feel free to let me know what other squares would work, what topics or categories I neglected, or what books you would recommend to cross off certain squares.

For me, it might be a way to broaden my reading horizons.  Like most folks with strong opinions and just enough knowledge to be dangerous, I tend to choose books from authors with whom I’ll mostly agree.

Peace to you all, and happy reading.
