Luffy (monkey-d-luffy) | 75 comments I1: 20th Century Classic: L'Étranger by Albert Camus
I2: New-to-You Author: Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell
I3: Mystery or Crime Classic: Whose Body? by Dorothy L. Sayers
I4: Classic of More than 500 Pages: Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray
I5: 18th Century or Earlier Classic: Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe

Revised due to incompatibility with most classics I've tried to read.

Candi (candih) | 743 comments Awesome list, Luffy! I hope you enjoy them. Les Misérables was one of my highlights from this past year :)


message 3: by Luffy (new)

Luffy (monkey-d-luffy) | 75 comments Thanks for noticing my entries, Candi! Les Misérables is a book that's quite difficult to hate.

Welcome to the 2018 Challenge Luffy; you have a great list of books here.

Luffy (monkey-d-luffy) | 75 comments Well Katy, I do feel welcomed. I hope, and I'm convinced I'll complete the challenge.

The nice thing about Bingo is that there are several ways to win a bingo along with a blackout if that is your goal.

Can you elaborate on the blackout thing? Thanks.

Oh I concur I will enjoy it. These titles are calling out to me:)

Bat-Cat | 1300 comments Really nice list, Luffy. I will be reading a few of them as well. See you in the threads> :-)

Super list, Luffy. Good luck.


message 15: by Luffy (new)

Luffy (monkey-d-luffy) | 75 comments Finished The Sun Is Also a Star. A worthwhile read. It's a good love story and perhaps more than that. I gave it 3 stars.

Blackout is reading a book for every square on the board.

I figured that in the end. Such a long way to go:)

Katy (kathy_h) | 9263 comments Mod
That is why I try for a row of 5 instead at first it seems much more doable.


message 19: by Luffy (new)

Luffy (monkey-d-luffy) | 75 comments I finished reading Vanity Fair. Here is my review:-

The one hefty book left is Les Mis. Otherwise I could see myself finishing this challenge.


message 22: by Luffy (new)

Luffy (monkey-d-luffy) | 75 comments I'm not completing this challenge. I'm about to DNF Captain Courageous. I'm not ready. I'm sorry.

No problem.
Also remember that you don't need a blackout to win at Bingo -- any 5 in a row or the corner squares will work. Also you can change what books you want to read for each square at any time during the year.


message 24: by Brina (new)

Brina I agree with Katy. I have changed my books about five times already and you have the rest of the year.

Thanks! I will reflect on this.

Luffy (monkey-d-luffy) | 75 comments I've chosen level one bingo. I will be satisfied with this.
