Let me start today by saying that this summer challenge by Isaura Pereira#jardimdemilhistorias and Patrícia Rodrigues#oprazerdascoisas changed my life, for not only by making new friendships, this blog came to be, I was invited to a writing challenge by desafiodestapássara, I was only 4 books from finishing the book bingo card,as well I’ve read in this 3 months over 21 books, soo I’m proud of me, I also found a new writer whose books I’m loving.
With this I mean to say that I loved the book bingo challenge, very, very, very much. In fact so much that I decided to create a challenge of my own, and I can’t thank those two girls.
I did not wish to “steal” their challange, so I got to think in the long winters we used to have when the seasons were diverse and thought of a challenge to last 2019/2020 winters.
The rules are 1 category= 1 book; begins at 0:00 11/11 and finishes at 23:59 of March 20 (between my dad’s birthday and the very last winter’s day). I tried to choose easy categories so any book of your shelves can be chosen for this challenge.
I divided the categories in the months and anyone is a winner if it reads as much or as little as their heart desires, and you don’t need to follow the numbers or moths order, you can start with a book from March, the another from November the February then one from January and finish with a book from December. You do as you like. You read and have fun.
