Book Bingo 2018

Doing this one again.  Will get as many spaces As I can. Click here to sign up.

The Grand World of Books Book Bingo 2018 Completed 3
As with last year, there really are no rules of play. It’s up to you as the reader whether you want to try for just one bingo or to black out the board…or something in between. Or…just chose your favorite spaces and read for fun with the board as a guide. This is not meant to be stressful, but to be a fun game to enhance your reading. A couple of notes: 1) For the square that says “A Book that Made You Cry” – this does not need to be taken literally. It can also be just a book that made you feel sad or emotional. 2) For the square that says “A Book that Made You Angry” – again, we’re looking for strong emotions here, whether you’re mad at the author, the book, the characters, etc.
