Other than the goodreads reading challenge, i’ve never taken part in any reading lists or goals or the like. But this bookish bingo card by The Girly Geek Book Blog seems just fun enough without a huge level of commitment. I don’t know if i’ll get a line (vertically, anyway, i might mange horizontally!) and i highly doubt i’ll get a bingo, but i might make patterns and i will for sure have fun. And that’s what reading is about most of the time, right? Fun. So, here is where i’ll be keeping track of my bingo card, and checking off relevant squares. I will also link back to this post in the reviews of books that count towards it.

Rosemary’s Baby: Set somewhere i want to visit.
Wanderers of Time: Set in the future, set outside of Earth and about time travel.
Bedlam: Pirates, cyborgs or robots and set in a parallel universe. (Some might consider pirates a stretch, but computer game space travel or not, they are called pirates in the book!)
Ablutions: Notes for a Novel: Free space
The Little Book of Vegan Poems: Chosen because of its cover and a book of poetry.
Breakfast of Champions: A memoir (okay, maybe not exactly, but the blurb does say: ‘a miraculous weaving of science fiction, memoir, parable, fairy tale and farce’ so i’m totally having it).
