The GWB 2017 Book Bingo Update Post

Book Bingo Blue w Spaces Covered


This is my sticky post for my personal 2017 Book Bingo Challenge. Ultimately, my goal for this challenge is to black out the card, but failing that, I just want to get as many bingos as possible, and not stress myself out about it.

If you are interested in participating in this challenge in 2017 as well, you can find the board without spaces daubed HERE, and all I ask is that you share a link to your page in the comments.

(Note: I just noticed that I essentially put the same square twice – regarding debut books. I will not be changing it now, as it is almost the end of January. I apologize, though, for the error, and I will proofread better in the future.)

Update 5/8/17: I am just one square away from having a bingo on the bottom! I need to sort through the books I keep hearing about that are about mental illness…and then actually read one. My reading this year is SOOO disorganized. Which is weird, because I have this Bingo card to fill out. I’m not stressing out about it, though…it will happen when it happens. I’m really quite pleased with my progress so far.
