Question from Karen:

“Over the past three years my friends and I have spent the month of July reading and talking about Science Fiction books – we call it Sci-Fi July. For the last two years I’ve made a BINGO card with 24 categories to help “guide” our reading a bit throughout the month (this was totally inspired by the Read Harder Challenge). I’m copy+pasting our big list of past categories and some of our ideas for 2018 at the end of this e-mail, but I’d LOVE to get some suggestions from you two for new sci-fi categories to help us stretch our reading this summer!”
