Book Bingo!

...I know at least a few of y'all who read this blog also listen faithfully to the Books on the Nightstand podcast. Have you heard about the summer reading bingo? I thought it would be fun to play along with a slightly smaller :-) crowd than the crew this podcast hosts on Goodreads. So if you're reading this, consider yourself invited...and challenged.

Visit the link, print your card(s) and play along. For our game, you can count any book finished between Memorial Day Weekend and Labor Day Weekend (May 24 - September 1). A book can only count for one square on one card. You can enter as many Bingo's on as many cards as you like. I'll draw a winner from the completed Bingo's and award a prize in September.

Here's my card. So far I've finished one book (Louise Penny's The Cruelest Month) it's a "Cozy Mystery". I've got eight more hours to finish The Goldfinch...and I need to decide if that's "Longer than 500 pages" or "Audiobook".  And then I'm going to have to figure out where to go next!

I'll plan a few checkin's during the summer to keep y'all on track. Questions? (concerns?!)  I hope you'll play along!

  2. On 2Do List: listen to podcasts and re-read a few oldies. Your invite to do Book Bingo comes along at the most opportune time, so, count me IN too! Off to do some 'research.' This looks like fun!
    Cheers~

  3. I'd check off Longer than 500 pages, because chance are greater you'll listen to another audiobook, but may not get around to another 500 pg tome. I thought about playing but didn't have a chance of filling some of the squares. When I realized I only need BINGO I knew I could do it.

  4. Hmmmm....I doubt I'll make much of a dent but printing out the card any way! It does look fun! (You always find the best things!!!)

  5. I'm behind on BOTNS podcasts so hadn't heard about this yet. I'm definitely in! Margene and I might have some trouble with the "author who shares your first name" square, but this looks like a great opportunity to branch out in my reading a bit. Thanks for your brilliant idea; off to print my card!
