Hello and happy 1st of Christmas! It’s the beginning of a new season (sort of? Just roll with it) and that means it’s time for a new Bookish Bingo! I am so, so excited about this card. I think it’s my most beautiful design yet, and special shout out to Mellenes and Digital Press Creation who I purchased the clipart from.

How does it work?

The object of Bookish Bingo is to get as many bingos as possible. That is, five across, up and down, or diagonally. With each bingo you achieve, you get one extra entry into the giveaway at the end of this round.

In order for a book to count, you must have read it between December 1st and February 29th. You do not have to review each book and you do not have to have a blog to participate.

To sign up, leave a comment on this post – simple as that.

Now, onto the card!

  1. Hi!
    So, I guess I’ll be participating. πŸ˜€
    Saw the Tweet, thought – let’s check this out. I mean, I know about bookish bingo, I’ve seen them, thought them fun, but have never participated in one. And I don’t have that much time for reading. But, eh… Let’s jump right in. πŸ˜€
    Oh, you have Jellicoe Road as a suggestion. Too bad I couldn’t find it at TBD when Sister’s B-day was coming, she wanted that book. I would have one that fits a square πŸ˜€
    We’ll see how this goes. πŸ™‚

    • You can print it, you can use photoshop/paint/pic monkey to mark off each square, you can write a list, or you can keep track of it in your head. However you want. πŸ™‚

  2. My blog’s been very quiet recently, but what better time to try to start posting again and reading all the things than the week I start a new job? Clearly nothing could possibly go wrong here.
