Bookish Bingo...

Wanna play some reading Bingo with the books you read this year? Check it out... Random House has Printable Bingo Cards (with a different Bingo card available for YA readers). Read a book and fill in a square. What could be easier? Or more fun?


 Isn't this idea great? I love it so much I've decided going for a simple Bingo isn't enough...I'm going for blackout. After all, there are only 24 squares to fill out (48 if you play YA Bingo, too), and I've got all year. (I've already filled in 5 of the easier squares.) There are a few categories that worry me though, like having to read a book of short stories, or a book with non-human characters. Those will definitely be a challenge. Got any suggestions? As for the rest, they should be fairly easy to complete. So print out a card and play some bookish bingo this year, too!

Happy Reading!

  1. These Bingo cards are a fun way to track my reading! I printed both the regular and the YA. I am tempted to go for blackout, but that may require some creative interpretation of the categories on my part. For short stories, I am going to read a Maeve Binchy collection that has been sitting on my shelf. As for non-human characters, any book with an alien, werewolf, vampire, ghost, etc. will do...I am thinking sci-fi or fantasy for this one, although I did read a book where a killer whale was one of the characters (but that book also had a blue cover). I am stuck on books by authors under 30. Wish me luck on that one!
