Winter Book Bingo!
This was not intentional but I have somehow managed to avoid every single bingo. No diagonals, no straight lines, no four corners. The book I will finish next is a non-fiction title, so my record will remain intact. After that, however, it will be Bingo City!
So far favorite titles have included Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett (Award Winning Book), Enola Holmes and the Case of the Missing Marquess by Nancy Springer (Book Made into a Movie), Nothing to See Here by Kevin Wilson (NYT Bestseller), and Take Me to the Five and Dime by Connie Willis (Book Set in Winter).
