Many apologies for the delay in posting the latest seasonal bingo. I had to get a new phone and lost much of the notes I'd created concerning my mini challenge plans.

I think I've cobbled together enough to play this challenge.
Basic Bingo rules apply. (Five in a row. Horizontal. Vertical. Diagonal. Around the World. Blackout.)

You're competing against yourself. You only need to get one "bingo" to complete the challenge, but you can get as many as you want.
Copy and paste the template into your own thread, then edit in the books as you read them.

Remember to post BINGO when you finish one so we can celebrate with you. :)

message 15: by Tracey (new)

Tracey | 916 comments I'm having trouble interpreting what "unfamiliar territory" would be. How are others interpreting this one?


message 16: by Jenny, Certified Bookworm (new)

Jenny Clark | 1535 comments Mod
Chase- I interpret it as a genre you don't usualy read, or possibly an author you don't read usualy. I hope this helps!


message 17: by Renee, Mistress of the Mini-Challenge (new)

Renee M | 4720 comments Mod
That's how I'd interpret it, but if you have another viable definition, that works, too.

My dysfunctional family slot went to Hart's Hope. I think it qualifies pretty well... A woman kills her baby to gain power, and though neither she nor the father know it, he is her step son in a convoluted way, and then his father wants to kill him... Just a tad dysfunctional

My goal was to get multiple BINGOs, but a few books I chose took me a long time to get through (I'm looking at you Living History and Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth...even though I enjoyed both)! Hopefully I can get one more before the official start of winter on the 21st, but I'm also trying to finish up some other challenges for this year.
