Joey Epperson (eppic_outdoorsman) | 38 comments Ok, sign me up. I am going to go for 12 Bingos, 1 per month (I hope).
I also noticed some missing genres so I may fiddle with them as I make each Bingo card if that is ok, but I didn't see Western on there...
Here is my first card:


I will update my 5 books at the beginning of each month after creating my new card, will update this post with January's 5 books by the 30th of December...

In the challenge idea thread, you asked if we could have challenges to get you out of your comfort zone. This is one of those challenges we use to do that. I am surprised that we overlooked Westerns. I will make sure that gets on the list in future years.
