Weekend Update – The Reading Bingo Mid-Year Update Edition

>> Sunday, June 29, 2014

Weekend Update

Earlier this year I joined up with a group of folks on Library thing and said I would participate in this Reading Bingo Game for 2014. Then I never updated my list or bingo cards at all.

Mid-year seems like a good time to check in on my progress to see what things look like. These cards were initially put together by the folks at Retreat by Random House and one is listed for YA books but I’m choosing to ignore that distinction and just use both bingo cards for any and all books.

I never intended to seek out books for specific spaces on the cards. All along my plan was to see what I ended up with naturally as I read my way through the year.

As of today here’s where things stand.

For the Regular Bingo:
More than 500 pages: Outlander
Forgotten Classic:
Book that became a movie: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
Published this year: While Beauty Slept
Number in the title: 1001 Nights of Snowfall

2014 (not really) YA Reading Bingo

I have books I read that could possibly fit some of those still empty spaces but I’ve also got other books in my reading plans that would fit them better so I’m waiting to fill them in.

I managed to score one Bingo so far and it looks like I’m close to several more. I may have to abandon my plan to not choose books for a specific space it if looks like a particular book might fill in a crucial space for me on my game cards. I’m looking at you “Book of Short Stories”

Hope you’re having a great weekend!

What a fun game. Reminds me of What's in a Name?

Beth F: It really is a lot like What's in a Name - I just need to keep up with marking off spots when I can.
