Michelle who is a friend some of you know from ModPo, sent me this Summer Reading Bingo card from Seattle Public Library. Shall we?

  1. Well, not exactly certain how it works, but hey, I could give it a whirl. As long as I still get to decide what I am reading. Never been much of one for having someone else determine what I am going to read. My pile is big enough already. : )

    1. I’m not much for rules but I think you just try to get to bingo by selecting books based on the genres presented? I think the actual goal is to complete the whole board but again– I haven’t done any research as of this moment (probably will soon tho if we think this might be a fun variant…)

  2. This is a fun idea to push me into categories I might not consciously seek out on my own. I love our blog; it definitely keeps me from getting stuck in a reading rut in so many different ways. Perhaps we could each report if/when we get a BINGO. I know we all have too many books to read, but if you are interested in possible selections for each BINGO category, I found this site: https://www.spl.org/programs-and-services/learning/summer-of-learning/2021-adult-book-bingo/en-bingo-resources. The Bingo project is the combined effort of Seattle Arts and Lectures and The Seattle Public Library. I explored the archives of SAL which contain some great conversations. I know we won’t be bored this summer! I hope we can all read and relax!

    1. Thanks for the leg work B! I think the bingo card is a welcome variant on the 10 books in 10 weeks — I’ll be excited to see how folks make out with summer reading 🙂

  3. Hello readers…so glad to be a part of this. I have been doing Seattle library Book Bingo since 2015. The categories focus my reading, but I have lots of choices within each category. And the link that Barbara shared includes lots of suggestions for each category. I also find it valuable to talk to other readers about their choices. This always stretches me.

    1. We started this blog in 2015 with a summer reading challenge — 10 books in 10 weeks. The first time I did this was in 2013 when I was invited by a friend to follow a specific itinerary of 10 books (one had to be over 500 pages, rules like that) — a bit more linear than bingo 🙂

      I am glad you are here!

    2. MF!! Hello, hello. Very Xcited to see you here. I haven’t been good at wrangling myself these days but if I fall off the Bingo card I’ll just say I’ve gone all ModPo and broken the rules. 🙂
