2018 Book Bingo

This year I’m teaming up with Mrs B’s Book Reviews for a book bingo reading challenge. We’ve even created our own card!

 

20180102_002540

 

We have come up with a bingo plan that will ensure I play bingo throughout the year instead of after the fact on the last day of December (which has been my usual game plan). On every first and third Saturday of each month, Mrs B’s Book Reviews and I will post a bingo entry. Given there are 25 squares, we’ll have an extra Saturday in March and June. We aren’t coordinating our squares, because we agree it will be more fun to see what each of us comes up with for each round. Although it would be funny if we coincidentally ended up with the same book for the same square! This is our kick off post, so the first entry will be posted on the 20th January.

Play along if you like! Feel free to use our card and tell us about your entries along the way via the comments on the bingo posts. If you are a blogger, we’d love it if you joined in via your own blogs, but please let us know so we can follow your progress.

Don’t forget to check in with Mrs B’s Book Reviews for her #bookbingo kick off post!

  2. Hi Theresa (and Mrs B)
    If I was to join in, would I link my reviews here in the comment section as I read? And they don’t have to be read in order, do they?

  4. Yes, physically, either on the computer or on a print-out. I’m not sure how to do it so I can see the category and then how I’ll display it at the end. Computer graphics and things like that aren’t my strength.

  6. I have finished the challenge πŸ™‚ I’m going to post it, but I don’t know if it’ll work (as it does on Goodreads!) Feel free to delete the comment if it’s too messy Theresa!
