You'll need to copy and paste the list again so that you can edit it as you go. Have fun!!

Julie | 644 comments My Bingo Challenge is off to a great start :-)

Since the beginning of the year I've read both Death of a Naturalist (N4), Heidi (G4) and We Have Always Lived in the Castle (O2).

My favourite was by far We Have Always Lived in the Castle, a really great read, I highly recommend it.


message 5: by Pink (new)

Pink | 6554 comments Well done, i liked We have always lived in the castle too.


message 6: by Sylwia (new)

Sylwia (sylwialovesloki) | 145 comments I've been wanting to read that last one for some time. Nice to know I'm in for something good.


message 7: by Julie (new)

Julie | 644 comments I've updated my list of books read - I've really made a good start to this challenge as January has been a very good reading month. Since I started evening classes this week I'm pretty sure I won't be able to keep up the momentum.

My favourite read is still We Have Always lived in the Castle, though I also really enjoyed The Scarlet Letter

Congratulations, Julie!!!


Andrea AKA Catsos Person (catsosperson) | 1791 comments Great Julie!

You've read some great titles for you first row of bingo!


message 13: by Kathleen (new)

Kathleen | 3935 comments I read Whose Body? recently too and thought it was fun. What great progress you're making through this challenge--yay Julie!


message 14: by Julie (new)

Julie | 644 comments Just three books to go for the full plate - namely:

B3: Classic of Africa
G1: Published in the 1600's
O3: Classic of Asia or Oceania

B3 and O3 corresponds well with two of my to-read books from my women's century challenge, and then I think I'll do a Shakespeare play for G1 :-)
