I’ve got ideas for almost all the squares. As in previous years, I’m trying to read books I already own or books I’ve been meaning to read (The Outsiders, Invisible Man). One square has me stumped – I emailed my mom last night about the “that your parents didn’t/wouldn’t have let you read as a kid” because I don’t remember anything but encouragement to read whatever I wanted! I’m looking forward to the “literary journal” and “verse novel” – those are two new-to-me genres. And that upper left corner “a random book from a shelf” should be fun, too.
I hope you’re planning to play along. This summer, books you finish between Saturday, May 28 (the beginning of Memorial Day Weekend) and Monday, September 5 (the end of Labor Day Weekend) count. We’ll follow the same rules as in previous years – each book counts for one square. You can read whatever you want for the middle square. This is supposed to be fun, so a bit of “liberal interpretation” of the categories is ok! Each completed Bingo (a row, a column or a diagonal) earns you one entry in the drawing. I’ll choose a winner from the pool of Bingos in September.
Wishing you a summer of delightful reading…and more than a few Bingos!
