HOW TO PLAY?

To be eligible for a drawing at the end of the year for a book to win, you need to complete at least one BINGO.
Your book reviews need to be posted on your blog or on your Goodreads page between January 1- December 31, 2015

BINGOS may be claimed by completing 5 spaces in a row–horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. You may also claim a “Four Corner” BINGO by reading a book for each of the four corners plus 1 more space —any space you wish.
Then, AFTER YOU HAVE COMPLETED ONE BINGO,
you get 1 extra entry per 1 extra square you fill in – these extra squares can be located anywhere on the board.
So after your first bingo, the more squares you cover, the more chances you have to win a book at the end of the year!

PLEASE NOTE:

  1. apart from square D5, it’s ok to read the books in your native language.
  2. many squares can be filled by reading books written by authors of any nationality, for instance A2, B3, C2, etc

WHAT MEDIA?

It’s ok to count here a book that counts also for another reading challenge you may be doing. All medias are accepted: paper, ebook, audiobook

  1. I didn’t manage to get bingo in 2015 (and with time running out I don’t think I will) but I had a lot of fun doing this challenge and I can’t wait to do it again in 2016! Merci !

  2. I am looking forward to starting this challenge! I have never done it before and it looks quite complicated, but I am sure I will pick it up as we go along! I am also hoping this will encourage me to start blogging about books too.

    • Thanks for joining Laura. Tell me, what does look complicated?? I’ll make it clearer for everyone. Right now, it says, “BINGOS may be claimed by completing 5 spaces in a row–horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. You may also claim a “Four Corner” BINGO by reading a book for each of the four corners plus 1 more space —any space you wish.”

  14. Do subtitles count? I would like to use The Conversation: The Night Napoleon Changed the World by Jean d’Ormesson for C4 (With Famous French Person In The Title). https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17592149-the-conversation

    I would to use The Age of Desire by Jennie Fields for E1 (Historical Novel Set In France). It is told through the points of view of two women, one of whom lives in France. Is this okay? https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13092691-the-age-of-desire
