Fran - Just lurk in other people's challenges. People are already beginning to post the books they plan to use. Good luck.

And we will have links to lists of possibilities in the main thread too. Hope you have fun.

Fran | 76 comments Updated message two above.

I didn't post anything in January because both me and my computer were ill. I finally got our my really bad cold (lasted the whole month) but unfortunately my computer didn't survive. My computer techie (little brother) gave it no hope and said ten years is long enough just get a new one. So still trying to figure the new one out and crying that I had to give up my old one!! But I survived!!!

Bummer. Glad you are doing better and you've done some great reading I see.


message 9: by Fran (new)

Fran | 76 comments Just updated my Bingo challenge. I will do better next year and update as I go because it takes forever if you don't. I only have one more to go and I will have a blackout. Currently reading Crocodile on the Sandbank and its pretty good so far.

Terris | 2627 comments Wow, you've read some really good ones! I hope I do so well on my Bingo challenge next year :)


message 11: by Susie (new)

Susie | 754 comments I like updating mine...it helps keep me motivated if I have a visual of my progress! And yes...takes me some time to update just 1!
I read Crocodile on the Sandbank a couple years ago...must read more of them. Took me awhile to get into it, but it kept getting better...

message 13: by Fran (new)

Fran | 76 comments Just updated message 2 and got blackout before the clock struck midnight!! Finished with hours to spare! I throughly enjoyed this challenge and plan to do next year's bingo. Favorites were North and South, Middlemarch, Gone with the Wind, Little Women, Macbeth, A Game of Thrones and The Hobbit.

Happy Reading 2017!!
