With Margaret Atwood Reading Month just a few days away, we thought we’d share our BINGO card.
It’s just for fun. And maybe it’s just for our own amusement…because there are a lot of literary events and challenges in November! But if you want to play along, please do.
If you grew up playing traditional BINGO, you might be thinking of only rows and columns.
But maybe you’d like to aim only for the corners?
Or you think that ‘X’ really does mark the spot?
Or you like the idea of squaring things off? (Maybe the border or maybe an inner square.)
Or you think a diamond is a reading girl’s best friend?
And maybe in November you’re just coming up with ideas, but you like the idea of playing with this BINGO card through the coming months?
And maybe you almost-kinda-sorta like the BINGO but you want to alter it slightly, or you want to interpret it to suit other reading plans you’ve already made?
When it comes to the listicles, we’re imagining making lists of new things that we’ve learned about either the author or her writing, during the course of our reading.
When it comes to the Make/Draw and Write, we’re imagining putting our creative muscles to work on something that’s inspired by either the writer or her work.
But feel free to interpret these prompts differently to suit yourself.
Just have fun with it. (Or, don’t)
As you wish.
From Sunday, November 1st to Monday, November 30th we’ll be reading Margaret Atwood, and we invite you to join in! (And, don’t forget, the 18th is Margaret Atwood’s 81st birthday. We’ll be celebrating with books, quotes, and cake!)
