#DiversityBingo2017 starts on January 1, 2017, and this is definitely the challenge I am looking forward to the most in the new year!
The goal of the challenge is to cover all of the squares during 2017. Although I don’t have books chosen for all of the categories yet – and some of my book selections might change categories – I do have a few in mind already.

good luck with this. I am trying to pretend there are no challenges around since I will end up overstretching myself otherwise
I don’t always fully complete challenges I sign up for, and it may be a stretch for me to complete the entire Bingo Board, but I find the fun is in the effort!
I love these choices! I’m probably going to end up doing the challenge too, but I just have no idea where to start!!
Thanks! There are so many great categories, it can be a bit overwhelming choosing where to start! I plan on starting with the Indigenous MC, Bisexual MC, and Deaf/HoH MC categories in Jan.
Awesome places to start! I have cautiously decided to start on the practicing jewish MC to deaf/hard of hearing row. But we’ll see how that goes!!
Which book do you have in mind for the Jewish category?
I think I’m going to try ‘Flying Couch: A Graphic Memoir’.
This is a hefty bingo card: good luck!
