Science Fiction/Fantasy Bingo Reading Challenge


Hosted by the B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

The global internet. 3-D printing. Drones everywhere. It’s a new year. 2016. We’re living in the future, and the future is now. With so much happening around us every day (we didn’t even mention repeat viewings of the new Star Wars movie), it can be tough to keep track of your reading, especially with so many exciting new releases to look forward to. (We’ve already told you about 42 of them we can’t wait to read, and let the editors and publishers pick their favorites as well.)

With that in mind, we’ve come up with a helpful way to stay organized in the new year: SF/F Book Bingo! Just print out the card below and use it to map out your 2016 reading. Go for a quick Bingo, or do it up right and fill the card. You’ve got 12 whole months, after all. Click the link below the image for a hi-res version, post your suggestions for some of the trickier squares in the comments, and get reading.

This looks like a very fun challenge. I love the Bingo card! I hope I can get at least 1 bingo or 10 random squares on the Bingo card.
