✿Sandra | 3017 comments Since many of us are doing the Reading BINGO cards, I thought it might be fun to discuss the books we have read to fill our squares, how many squares we have filled, etc. Deb said go for it, so take it away, ladies!

You can click on the BINGO card, and then print it out.


message 3: by ☕Laura (new)

☕Laura | 11014 comments Great idea, Sandra! I have 17 squares covered and 8 to go, and I have 2 Bingos so far. I'm reading my "First Book by a Favourite Author" now (The Mistress of Spices) and that will give me a 3rd Bingo. For "A Forgotten Classic" I'm planning Nine Coaches Waiting and for "A Book with Non-Human Characters" I'm planning Three Bags Full. I have some thoughts for the other squares but haven't decided anything for sure yet.

C) A forgotten classic (whatever that is; is it a book that I've forgotten about? Hmmmm), or
D) The second book in a series, or
E) A book of non-fiction

Start any time in 2014. I first saw the link shortly after January 1. It's a fun and no-pressure way to keep track of what you read this year.

Yes - it's hard to find author's birth dates sometimes - how strange that they don't want to broadcast their year of birth!! Have you read Burial Rites? Hannah Kent was born in 1985...

✿Sandra | 3017 comments I don't know if any of you are reading The Divergent series, but I know that author is under 30. I agree that it is hard to find out. I was picking out books to cover some of my squares the other day, and I couldn't come up with a book for that one until I did some research online and discovered she is under 30. I still need to read the third book.

Ok I am questioning a square! Does "the first book by a favorite author" mean ~~~

1. Their very first written book
2. The first book of a series
3. Can a first novel by a new author - that you really liked - be considered a favorite author - or do they have to be someone you have already read and know that you like
4. Or can all the above work?

Not sure but I think that was all I had ...LOL!

I was thinking it meant #1, but I think #3 would count too now that you mention it. It doesn't specify an "old favorite author", so a new author can become a favorite as well. #2 I didn't think would fit, but hey, if you want to make it fit, remember there are no bingo police hiding under your bed or in your closets. LOL

♥ Sandi ❣	 | 13388 comments Mod
Well my "long time" favorite authors I have had for some time and I have probably read their first books ~ at least with 99% of them. But the first book of a series would be a bigger option. Some of my favorite authors do write both stand alone and series books - many of which I have not read. So with that said ~ that could eliminate most of my "long time" "favorite" authors first books - so the initial book of an author that I really really like (hense ~ "new" Favorite author) would also open up some possibilities.

Just not sure what everyone else was doing. And of course did not want to be singled out by the Bingo Police!!!

☮Karen | 9443 comments Pretty sure. ;)


message 31: by Irene (new)

Irene | 3081 comments When I first read it, I thought it meant the first book read by an author that you were adding to your "favorite" list based on that encounter. I put "Rules of Civility" in that square. But, after doing that, I wondered if it meant to find the first book written by someone already on your favorite list.

About those Bingo Police.... If I hand them a dust cloth, will they exterminate the dust bunnies under my bed while they are hanging out there?

I assumed it meant to go back and read the first book published by an author whose work I love. I've already read a lot of those, but it thought I'd look at Colum McCann.

Lynnski (lynnski723) | 1951 comments I'm late to the party but decided to try to fill a bingo card :) I've only read 10 books so far this year but was able to find a square for each of them....I think. The square causing me to fear the bingo police is the "based on a true story" - that's not the same as non-fiction, right?

One of my goals for this year is to read the entire series. I really loved the first two so far and am starting The Cruelest Month (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, #3) by Louise Penny today.

Some of the blank spots I have ideas for and am not too concerned about. But I'm not sure about "Forgotten Classic" - what makes a classic forgotten? Forgotten by me? Or most other people? And I've recently read Jack's Widow which is based on the true story of Jacqueline Kennedy's widowhood, but oh, so loosely (and with rearrangements of historical facts to suit the author and all sorts of wild surmises) that it feels like cheating to include it for the "based on a true story" square - and then the bingo police might be coming after ME!

I almost used Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children for the non-human square too, but put it somewhere else. Remember also it had a peregrine and some pigs, aside from the Hollows. :)

That's true - I read non-human as fantasy/sci-fi creatures! I forgot about animals! ****Possible spoiler for Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - (view spoiler)****
I could almost put any book there, really, as long as there were animals in it somewhere!

I'm going with Nine Coaches Waiting by Mary Stewart for that one, since the Amazon listing says "Rediscovered Classic". Otherwise, I wouldn't know what would fit that square.

Hey Lynn
The Three Pines/Gamache series is my most favourite mystery series!
I picked up Bury Your Dead a few years back while in the airport heading to Mexico on vacation. It is 6th in the series but I didn't realize it until I began reading it. I fell so in love with the characters and setting I could hardly wait to get home to get the first book and I have since read the whole series and recommend to all that will listen. I am eagerly awaiting the next instalment promised by Louise around August, I think.
Enjoy them!

I think any character that does not have human form or qualities fits this. I would even say if a city like Paris was one of the main characters in the book, such as one review I read recently stated, that would apply.

Barbara, I picked up two more titles in this series while at the used-book store this week: A Rule Against Murder A Rule Against Murder (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, #4) by Louise Penny, and The Beautiful Mystery The Beautiful Mystery (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, #8) by Louise Penny. My goal is to find all the titles in the series and read them in order. This series is even more popular than I had imagined. Each time I had gone to the used-book store to search for books in the Inspector Gamache series I had never found even one of the books on the shelves. But, this week was my lucky week! Currently, I am about three quarters of the way through A Fatal Grace A Fatal Grace (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, #2) by Louise Penny and am enjoying it, of course!
