HOW TO PLAY?

French Bingo 2015 card#2015FrenchBingo

To be eligible for a drawing at the end of the year for a book to win, you need to complete one BINGO. You 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 YOUR 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 bingo, the more squares you cover, the more chances you have to win a book at the end of the year!

PLEASE NOTE:

  1. for the squares where it says “by a French author” (A4 and A5 for instance) 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 A1, A3, B1, B3, etc

LINK YOUR REVIEW

The link you enter should be directing to your review of the book on your book blog or on your Goodreads account

PLEASE AS YOU LINK YOUR REVIEW FOLLOW THIS FORMAT: YOUR BLOG NAME, SQUARE #, TITLE. IF YOUR TITLE CAN FIT SEVERAL SQUARES DO SOMETHING LIKE : Emma @ Words And Peace (A1/B1: Journeys Through France)

When you have a BINGO, please specify it with your recap post you link, for instance: firstname @ name of blog (A1/B1 /C1/D1/E1: Bingo)

You can contact me if you have any question or if you are looking for titles.
