Fall Readathon - Reading Bingo Challenge (Updated)

Tuesday, August 29, 2017

In yesterday's announcement of our first Fall Readathon, I mentioned that there would be a reading bingo challenge. Below, you will find two bingo cards (one full size and one mini). The goal is to complete a bingo on each card which will take care of the eight books set as the overall goal for the readathon. One of the bingo cards has more traditional reading challenges, while the other has a variety of book genres. Alternatively, if you do not feel like participating in reading bingo, you can pick eight challenges from the cards and just do those instead. Under the Bingo cards is a more in-depth explanation of each challenge.
