Portable Magic

Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

Halloween Bingo

 

I am so excited about my first Bingo book challenge that I stayed up waaaaay too late last night planning for it, so this morning I am appropriately scarified with my hair standing on end and bags under my eyes. 

 

My only firm rule is to use books that I either already own or can borrow from the library, prioritizing the owned books. Assuming I'm not supposed to make a single book or story fit more than one square on the bingo card, I had to pick some re-reads for a blackout plan, although I can probably get at least one line without re-reading. I am going to compromise by prioritizing books/stories that I have never written a review for. 

 

I don't have a "Reads with Booklikes Friend" yet. Any suggestions? Anyone want to do a buddy read? I see the group read for It, but that one is going to be at the bottom of my list, as I've already reviewed it.
