Alana ~ The Book Pimp (loonyalana) | 79 comments Get those stamps ready for our June BINGO Reiding Challenge!

Yes... I know I'm running a few days late and I'm sorry. Life and all that jazz, but I've prepared something EXTRA special for all the Sharks!

description

In order to 'stamp' a box as finished (with the exception of the 'free space' star in the middle) you must read a book to fulfill that box. "Book by a Male Author" obviously means read a book written by a male author. For those that are a little more ambiguous such as "Candy Day - Any 'sweet' book" then I'm going to open that interpretation WIDE open. If you can justify your book choice then I'm going to accept it. If you really, really need validation then always feel welcome to ask questions. Sadly, there are no prizes for the first to call Bingo other than the knowledge that you totally are the King or Queen Shark of 'Reiding' Bingo for June.

♥Books must be read during the month of June
♥Each book can only fulfill ONE square unless you read the book twice during the month- then it can fulfill two squares.
♥To call 'Bingo' you must mark out 5 boxes (see picture below as reference)

Here are the all the possible ways to win a Bingo:

Viktoria | 49 comments Alana, you are a genius! This is such a fun challenge. It'll take a little planning on my part (I'm a moody reader) but I'm excited. Thanks for the all the hard work you put into this!

Joannah | 4 comments Fun!

I'm curious what books make up each person's BINGO.

The new Charly Davidson book is coming out later this month that I know can satisfy the 'funny read' but I'm always keen to discover a new book. So fellow, Sharks, please feel free to share!

Yes, alot like the Hokey Pokey...

you can put yourself in, you can pull yourself out,
you put yourself in and start shaking all about. You do the Reiding Bingo and you turn yourself around. That's what it's all about *clap*clap*

But seriously, though, it's all for fun!
