Alia | 228 comments BINGO for G

And I guess for level one which is all the corners.

Realization: Maybe this isn't how we do bingo. Maybe I'm just doing my own thing here.


message 16: by Pink (new)

Pink | 6554 comments Haha, no you're doing it right. Level 1 is 4 corners or 5 in a row. Level 2 is the inner 9 squares, level 3 the outer 16 and a blackout is level 4! Have fun however you do it. Congrats on another bingo :)


message 17: by Loretta (new)

Loretta | 2668 comments Excellent Alia! 👏🏻👏🏻


message 18: by Alia (new)

Alia | 228 comments Awesome :D

Just finished the Rembrandt book, and it turns out I got a few more:

BINGO for I

BINGO for 4

BINGO for level 2 and both diagonals (which is a given when you have both level one and level two).

Thank you both for the support! :)

Way to go, Alia! You are really making some good progress on this challenge.


message 21: by Alia (new)

Alia | 228 comments Thank you, Sara! :)


message 22: by Alia (new)

Alia | 228 comments Hey, I only have one left before I complete the main challenge!

On the other hand, I probably won't complete the other two. I know, it's "only" twenty-seven more books, but it's twenty-seven pretty heavy books.

Maybe next year I should make my challenge to read all the group reads. lol

I'm thinking that you have conquered this challenge with several Bingos. Nice going on that.

Thank you! :)


message 27: by Pink (new)

Pink | 6554 comments Congrats on the bingos you have completed! Only 1 book away for your main challenge? That looks so close, maybe you'll find something else that fits in the next couple of months! Either way, well done for this year :)


message 28: by Sue (new)

Sue K H (sky_bluez) | 3215 comments Congratulations on all the BINGOs Alia! Great job!

If you do change your mind and want to get that last book for mythology, I recommend Prometheus Bound if you like Greek Mythology. It's only a little over 100 pages.


message 29: by Alia (new)

Alia | 228 comments Thank you all for your kind words. That book is definitely going on my TBR. We'll see how it goes. :)
