Bookish Bingo: Holiday Edition Wrap-Up and Giveaway

If you’re here for the sign-ups, that was posted yesterday. It’s that time again! How did you do? I did NOT do as well as I wanted to. The holidays were 1000x busier than I thought they’d be, plus we have Mike’s birthday and my sister’s birthday in October and my own birthday in November, so I was really, really busy. I did cover some squares though, but no full bingo.

Bookish Bingo: Holiday Edition

It’s that time again! Summer has officially come to a close, which means it’s time for a new bingo card.  Fall is my favorite season, so I’ve been extremely excited for this round of bingo.  This time we have Halloween, Thanksgiving, AND Christmas all on one card.  It was hard narrowing down the choices for the squares, but I hope this gives you all a nice variety in the books you read this holiday season. Sign-ups are the same as last time: just leave a comment on this post with a link to where you’ll be tracking your bingo reads.  more »
