Welcome to the challenge and good reading.

Lagullande | 101 comments Thanks, Kathy. Right now I'm two books short of completing the 2015 Bingo, but I think it's unlikely that I'll read many more classics before the end of the year, so I thought I might as well start again in 2016!

I've got three books left for a Blackout Bingo in 2015 -- Don't know that I'll finish it either. But yes, looking forward to 2016.

Thanks, Susie. Maybe I will have to do a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT if I manage to get it all finished!

Thanks, Kathy. I keep moving my books around between slots so not sure whether my Bingos are permanent yet!
