A couple members of my local RWA Chapter came up with an idea to prompt members into reading outside their comfort zones. Bingo! Each member was given a card with 25 categories, along with the rules and an explanation of each category. All books read (except for one) must be a new-to-you book. Books and authors can be used only once. The center square is “WRITTEN BY A CNYRW MEMBER.”
I love this so much.
Of course, I read like most people (whom I know) watch television.
So far, I’ve filled in two squares.
As I sit here at my desk, I’m looking at the titles of many favorite books, only one of which I can use for the game. And I’m fascinated with books that could be used for multiple categories if that were allowed. Which it is not.
Example: Legend by Jude Deveraux
- Published before 2000
- Eat, Drink, & be Merry
- Paranormal Romance
- Reread a favorite
- Dress for success
- Time travel
Stretching it bit:
- Historical Romance
- The Billionaire
- Love Triangle
No wonder I love this book so much.
