SUMMER BINGO will run from June 20 through September, and should include books you read during that period of time.
You may set your goal as a single Bingo, as many as you can get, or try to complete the entire board. (As always, many thanks to Karen for creating this Bingo Challenge in the summer of 2014. It's the perfect summer challenge with something for everyone.)

RULES & GUIDELINES

* As with traditional Bingo, you can go for a horizontal, vertical, diagonal, "X" or "around the world". Or aim big and go for a "Blackout!"

Veronique Congrats Cindy :O)

It seems I've still not learnt my lesson. 10 books read and no bingo in sight... LOL

Renee M | 4719 comments Mod
Great job, Cindy!

Vero-
I do exactly the same thing! Although I won't scruple to move things around until I get my first Bingo. So Our Mutual Friend might start off as N1: a classic, but get moved to G4: male author. Once I claim my first Bingo though, everything stays put. It's just to hard to keep track after that. :p


message 29: by Cindy (new)

Cindy (bkind2books) | 805 comments Thanks. This is the first time I've been able to get a bingo (much less 2) before the final week or so. The categories were a little easier (at least for me) and I liked the themes on them.


message 30: by Veronique (new)

Veronique Thanks Renee. I do move it around a little too but ultimately I'm trying to fit what I read into it rather than using the list the other way around... Bound to happen then :O)


message 31: by Renee, Mistress of the Mini-Challenge (new)

Renee M | 4719 comments Mod
Exactly! ... Well, until I get close to the end. Then I'll read things to fit the categories. Especially if I'm close to a Bingo or a Blackout. But sometimes that pushes me outside my comfort zone so all is well. ;-)
