Bookish Bingo Spring 2017

Posted March 1, 2017 by Bekka in challenges / 59 Comments

Hi everyone! It’s time for another round of Bookish Bingo! The purpose of this challenge is to push ourselves to read more, and to broaden our horizons a little bit.

The Details:

  • Every new season has a new bingo card. This one is for books read in the months of March, April, and May.
  • The object is to get as many BINGOs as possible (five across, up and down, or diagonal)
  • One square per book
  • You do not have to review these books, or even have a blog, this is simply for books read during the allotted months
  • At the end of May there will be an international giveaway for all participants. The more BINGOs you get, the more entries you get in the giveaway!
  • To participate, simply leave a comment!
