We are starting a new feature for 2016. Monthly Book Bingo! Play along with us!
Here are the rules:
Each month we will upload a new bingo card. You download the bingo card and mark off squares as you read books each month. At the end of the month, we will post our own bingo cards. Link up your post or post your own bingo card in the comments.
The monthly winner will be the person with the most marked squares. None of that across, diagonal, up and down, corners stuff. Just the number of squares. Be sure to include the books you’ve read for each of the squares. Only books read during the current month count. You may use the same book to fill multiple squares. We’ll announce the winner the following month to allow everyone time to link up their posts.
And to encourage more people than Julie and I to participate, we are going to have a quarterly raffle! So download your Bookish Bingo card now and get started!
August Bookish Bingo
Click on the card to download (or right click here and save-as).
Mark up the card however you wish to claim the squares.
A few clarifications from the vague descriptions this month. (There is only so much room in those little squares to type!)
- From the Boy’s POV: This would be a romance told from the male point of view. Like Hopeless and Losing Hope. Losing Hope would count, as it’s from Holder’s POV.
- Helper Professional: This would be anyone who “helps” for a living. Police, Fireman, Cook, Housekeeper. Nanny. You get the idea.
- Free is NOT the same as the Free Space. This is a book received for free.
Here’s a recap for clarity (with specific dates for example):
Aug 2 – new bingo card available
Aug 31 – Julie and I will post our August completed bingo cards. You can link up your bingo cards in the post. We will also be posting the July winner of the most squares in the post.
Sept 2 – new bingo card available
Sept 30 – Julie and I will post our September completed cards. You can link up your bingo cards in the post. We will also be posting the August winner of the most squares in the post.
Oct 4 – new bingo cards available
Oct 30 – Julie and I will post our October completed cards. You can link up your bingo cards in the post. We will also be posting the September winning AND the 3rd Quarter Raffle Winner!
And so on and so forth.
