This challenge begins on January 1.
Mission: Claim at least one "Bingo!" before March 20 (the first day of spring)!

RULES & GUIDELINES

Not too many of these as it is supposed to be fun after all :)

* As with traditional Bingo, you can go for a horizontal, vertical, diagonal, "X" or "around the world" (perimeter). Or aim big and go for a black out (all squares)!

* A book can only be used once on the sheet.

* Interpret the categories as broadly as you like.

* Feel free to copy and paste the template below to record your books:

Winter Bingo Board!

Definitions (Updated as questions arise)...

Middle Grade- also called "Intermediate." Usually a chapter book written for children between the ages of 9-15. Newbury titles would fit here. Also, the Harry Potter books, Beverly Cleary, Rick Riordan, the Magic Treehouse series, Little House series, Anne of Green Gables, The Black Stallion, etc.

Magical Realism- "Matthew Strecher defines magic realism as "what happens when a highly detailed, realistic setting is invaded by something too strange to believe." (from Wikipedia)
For example, Beloved or One Hundred Years of Solitude.

Epistolary- written as a series of letters (or diary entries). For example, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

Made Into A Movie- does not have to be recently

Based on Mythology- some examples might be The Lightning Thief or Till We Have Faces or Grendel. Use your own judgement.

Color/Lettering blocks refer to the cover of the book. Wintery colors for this one. Spring Bingo will have different colors and categories. ;-)

Remember...

This Challenge looks harder than it is. You only need one BINGO to finish.

... Of course, you're welcome to claim as many as you can. It's gonna be a long winter.
