Manga Bingo Challenge + Giveaway | #mangareadathon 2018

#MANGAREADATHON GIVEAWAY #3: Manga Bingo!

You might remember that last year we made a bingo board for our reading challenges. We had fun with that bingo board, so we decided to keep it by combining it with another one of our challenges that we hosted last year, our Manga Treasure Hunt! This year we’re calling the challenge “manga bingo” AKA “mango” but the idea is the same.

To Enter This Giveaway:

  • Find pictures of the items listed in the mango board below in the manga you’re reading.
  • Take photographs of the items you find and share them on your social media (anywhere online as long as it is publicly visible). *Please DO NOT share pictures you’ve found in non-licensed publications or scanlations.
  • Share at least one item to enter this giveaway one time. Click HERE, to fill in the form.
  • Remember that when you share the pictures you MUST include the following information for any of the pictures you share to be eligible: name the item you’ve located (from the mango board), include the hashtag #mangabingo, the title of the book, and the author.

Ex. it may end up looking something like, this:

mangabingo2

  • Try for a Mango Blackout! If you find all of the items in the board below, Click HERE to fill in the form AGAIN and your name will be entered in this giveaway 3 times. You need to submit this form twice for your blackout to be counted.
  • Read the Rules & Disclaimers carefully before you enter.

READING CHALLENGES | #MangaReadathon 2018

2018 readathonIt’s that time of year again, our Manga Readathon will be running from June 17-23, 2018. It starts at 12:00am Sunday and ends at 11:59pm Saturday in your time zone.

The aim of this readathon is to encourage you to read more manga than you normally would! So, if you normally don’t read manga, try to read 1 book. If you normally read 60 volumes, try to read 61. That’s all there is to it.

However, we do have optional challenges which you may want to use to construct your TBR (to be read) pile:

reading challenges.jpg

Remember these are optional challenges, and are just there to help you pick what you’ll read during the week. They are also very flexible, so just make them work for you!

If you participated last year, you may remember that we created a 25-challenge bingo board for reading challenges. But with the number of comments we received after last year’s readathon we decided to scale it back to 7 simple challenges to make it easier for everyone.

However, if you are missing the 25-challenge bingo board from last year, we would recommend that you add-in the prompts from the #readmanga18 yearly manga reading challenge. The yearly challenge was created to replace the 25-challenge bingo board from last year’s readathon. Challenge yourself to see how many of the 52 yearly reading prompts you can complete in a single week! Find the challenge, here: #readmanga18


READATHON RULES: Please only read manga that have been legally translated into your language or legally licensed for distribution in your country. If you’re not sure you’re reading something legally, you probably aren’t. Thanks for avoiding scanlations during this readathon!
