Reading bingo – complete!

Way long months ago, I launched into Reading Bingo feeling confident and happy and ready to roll.

Then I hit a swamp around September, and things moved mighty slowly. 

But I got ‘er done. 

Here’s my list:

A book with more than 500 pages                  
The Snowman by Jo Nesbo
A book written by someone under thirty          
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
A book with a one-word title                        
 Night by Elie Wiesel
The first book by a favorite author                 
The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell
A book your friend loves                                
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
A forgotten classic                                        
The Sign of Four by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
A book with non-chuman characters       
Seabiscuit by Laura Hillenbrand
A book of short stories             
Wait for Signs by Craig Johnson
A book you heard about online         
A Nice Little Place on the North Side by George Will 
 
A book that scares you                         
Killshot by Elmore Leonard
A book that became a movie                
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
A funny book                                       
The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz
A best-selling book                 
The Last Patriot by Brad Thor
A book that is more than 10 years old   
The Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie   

 

A book published this year
I Don’t Know What You Know Me From by Judy Greer
A book by a female author                   
Park Lane by Frances Osborne
A book set on a different continent           
The Dinner by Herman Koch
A book based on a true story         
Cain at Gettysburg by Ralph Peters
The second book of a series             
The Mugger by Ed McBain
A book with a number in the title              
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
A book with a mystery              
Dry Bones in the Valley by Tom Bouman
A book of nonfiction              
Yes, Chef by Marcus Samuelsson
A book at the bottom of your to be read pile   
The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley

A book with a blue cover            
Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter

I really wished you could use one book for more than one square, because The Sign of Four could qualify for:
A forgotten classic
A book that is more than 10 years old
A book set on a different continent
The second book in a series 
A book with a number in the title
A book with a mystery

If this had been Scrabble, I’d’ve been racking up the points on that one.

But I got it done the old-fashioned way, and I’m feeling good about it.

  1. Congrats on finishing Reading Bingo!
    I 'played' this year, too, and had a lot of fun filling up my card. Great post! I should have posted something similar when I finished my Bingo card. Maybe next year. 🙂
