#G20Reads Blackout Bingo Reading Challenge 2019

Welcome to the 2019 #G20Reads Blackout Bingo Reading Challenge! It’s no secret that we’re passionate about reading here at GenTwenty. And if you’re reading this, we’d bet you are too.

This year, we’re hosting a Blackout Bingo Reading Challenge. There are three grids to choose from and we’re giving out prizes all year long. Oh yeah, and it’s free (especially if you have a library card ?)!

So how does it work?

Blackout Bingo means you must cover every square on your card to be eligible to win.

The #G20Reads Blackout Bingo Reading Challenge will run from January 1, 2019 – December 31, 2019.

There are three grids with varying book and title options to choose from. Pick one that will be easy or one that will be a challenge — it’s your choice!

You also don’t have to be a twenty-something to play — everyone is welcome to join in.

The Rules

Please read the following carefully! We want this challenge to run as smoothly as possible.

Each download has a grid with the book options and a blank grid for you to fill out with your titles. This challenge is for fun and will use the honor system in regards to actually reading the books. Please be honest about the books you read — it’s more fun that way.

All books must have been read in 2019. Even if a book could fit in two or more categories, please select 25 different titles to complete your grid.
