Continued from last month …
Dec. 1 – Jan. 31, 2018. The 2018 Sci-Fi Experience. Write posts about science fiction related books you are reading, television shows or films you are watching, games you are playing or science fiction art you are appreciating.
Dec.1 – Feb. 28, 2018. Bookish Bingo: Winter 2017-18. There’s a new bingo card with 24 different categories. The object of the game is to get as many bingos as possible – and also to possibly expand your reading horizons. The only real rules are that you can only have one square per book, so no doubling up on challenges, and you can only count one DNF.
