Let's have some Bingo fun at the Great Barrier Reef of Australia!!

Here's how it works:
Each bingo space has a “Great Barrier Reef” 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). **For the middle square you will use T or F.
2. Author’s First AND Last Initials Found in the Word(s).
3. Word Found in the TITLE or TEXT of book. Please share "portion of text" with page/location if using the TEXT option. **For the middle square the word must be "barrier" or "reef".
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.
