Today I’m sharing a brand new reading challenge created by Kathy @ Pages Below the Vaulted Sky and the Tarot Sequence fandom–Black Lives Matter Reading Bingo. You know I’m all about reading bingo challenges, so I’m excited for this one! Above all, this is a challenge aimed at discovering, reading, and supporting Black authors and their work. Please check out Kathy’s post for more details and prize information, but the basic gist can be found below.
- Books must be written (or co-written) by Black authors.
- Unless specified, books can be fiction or non-fiction; prose, verse, or graphic novel.
- Only one square may be filled by a re-read, and each book can only be used once. Multiple books by the same author is perfectly okay!
- After each book, we highly encourage you to write a review (or draw or film–get creative!) and share on Goodreads, Amazon, and social media (please do NOT tag authors in negative reviews).
- Email your bingo cards to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with country of residence (for prize purposes) and, if you’re comfortable sharing, social media usernames (so that we know to tag you in winner announcement posts).
End date: December 6 (11:59 PM PST)

I think this is a really creative way to incorporate more Black authors into our reading, definitely considering this! Thanks for sharing, Lisa😁
Thanks for bringing this to my attention! I saw it on Instagram, but didn’t realize it was being hosted by bloggers. (I almost never do instagram challenges…)
To be honest I’m really terrible at paying attention to instagram haha, so I totally get that. 🙂
This looks like a great challenge! Thank you for sharing!
You’re welcome! 🙂
This is a great challenge and one that really interests me. Realistically of course, I admit that I’m totally useless at challenges these days.
I am also useless at challenges right now haha. But I thought I’d share this one in case others would like to participate. 🙂
