From Sept. 15-October 15, it is Latinx Heritage Month. I wanted to start reading more books written by Latinos so I searched for any book challenges that would encourage me to do so. I encountered the Latinx Book Bingo and their read-a-thon. I know I can do the Bingo. I am going to attempt the readathon since that's the week I return to work.

- The Latinx book bingo will take place from September 15 to October 15, which is Hispanic Heritage Month 2019 (or how we are choosing to called it: Latinx Heritage Month). The bingo is being hosted by Paola (@Mancerelle), Allie (@Alliewithbooks) and by Sofia (@SofiainBookland) just like last year and the purpose of it is to highlight books about latinx characters and written by latinx authors.
- The aim of the bingo is to read as many Latinx books as you can, guided by the prompts on the bingo board. You can also try to get a bingo (read all prompts on a single line or row — you can read horizontally, vertically, and diagonally), but it’s not necessary, we just hope you read some latinx reads during this month.
Blurb about Latinx-a-thon:
Latinxathon is hosted by Jocelyn @ yogi with a book, Andrea @ bookramble, Priscilla @ BookieCharm and Yvette @ BookCave. This readathon runs from September 15th to September 24th and there are five prompts;
- VOICES: A book by an Indigenous or Afro-Latinx author
- LATINIDAD: A book by an intersectional Latinx author
