3 Months from Start Date

Everyone loves Bingo! Here's one with a safari twist. Look for an accompanying Safari Challenge next month.



Here's how it works:
Each bingo space has a “SAFARI” word in it - you complete a space one of FOUR ways & remember there is NO FREE SPACE:
1. Title Begins with the First OR Last letter of the Word (Use or Disregard A, An or The).
2. Author’s First AND Last Initials Found in the Word.
3. Word Found in the TITLE or TEXT of book. Please share "portion of text" with page/location if using the TEXT option.
4. Item found on cover - post cover.

You only need ONE of the above to complete the square AND you can mix and match tasks to complete a line. Be sure to tell us what task you used when posting completed squares. .

Choose a level of participation or work the levels as you go:
Level One: Complete One Line (horizontal, vertical or diagonal)
Level Two: Complete Two Lines
Level Three: Complete Three Lines
Level Four: Complete Four or More Lines

Challenge Rules: All forms of books are accepted as long as they are 100 pages or more. When posting updates of completed books, please include a link to the title and author’s name, along with the date you finished reading the book. Please post cover if it is task appropriate. When you have completed the challenge, please copy and paste your entire challenge and repost in a new message, letting us know it is completed.

Jan | 12581 comments Reserved for Questions

Question: If I complete Baboon to Binoculars and Lantern to Tent, Do I need to read 2 different books for Safari?
Answer: You do not need two different books. Once a square is finished you can use it for any line it is in.

Question: Do only horizontal, not vertical, lines count?
Answer: Horizontal, vertical AND diagonal count.

Question: Can you use a book for more than one square? I may find 4 words (squares) in one book for example and then there may be the author's name for another square, etc.
Answer: A book can only be used to complete ONE square. But that completed square can count for more than one directional line.

Question: When a book title begins with a number, do we use the equivalent first letter if that number is spelled out?
Answer: Yes - using her example 3rd Degree would be a 'T' for Third.

Can you use a book for more than one square? I may find 4 words (squares) in one book for example and then there may be the author's name for another square, etc.
