Hi everyone! It’s time for another Bookish Bingo! The purpose of this challenge is to push our reading horizons a little bit, as well as to push us to just read more in general. I hope you join us!

The Details:

  • Every new season has a new bingo card. This one is for books read in the months of June, July and August.
  • 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 August 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!

  1. Hi! This looks like so much fun, so I will be giving it a shot. 😀
    Not sure when I will start, I am kind of thinking it might be fun to do this during my 3-week vacation in August. 😀
