#AWW2016 Bingo Card COMPLETE

Back in early April, The Australian Women Writers Challenge (AWW) set up an optional mini challenge-within-a-challenge to try and combat midyear reading slumps and they developed the #2016AWW Bingo Cards.

Because I like to challenge myself, I decided to do both cars and while I hit a couple of lines on both cards, I didn’t finish the full card and am thus a little disappointed in myself. In hindsight I didn’t read any of my favourite authors backlist or any non-fiction written by Australian woman. Truth be told I’m horrible with ages and I think some of the authors on my list are under 30 but I’m not game to call them on it, so I’m leaving that bit blank. This challenge did call me on some of my reading habits though, so next year I’m going to make sure I read a wider range of books again!

      I think their blog says they are planning on doing a new one for this year and if that’s so I’m totally joining in on that again and am determined to complete a FULL card. I can’t believe I got so close on the first one – missing only two of them 😦
