January Bingo Board. Armed with a 100-title reading list for 2021 and a fresh start with my GMGR A to Z Challenge, I’m excited to launch into this month’s game. I think I’ve plotted a doable row. (Maybe even two!) Will you be participating in any reading challenges this year?
Autumn Busyness. I haven’t been posting much or reading much. (This happens whenever I’m deep in another project.) But I’ve skimmed past my looming deadlines and landed on my feet. Daily walks have increased my reading time. Let’s see if I can scrape together a BINGO this month!

All in a Row. I haven’t updated my BINGO board for August here, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been reading. This is an admittedly busy month for me, so I chose my titles with more strategy than usual. Lined them right up:
I’m tackling my summer reading, one BINGO board at a time. Here’s what’s in store for August. I’ve already been poking through my Want to Read list on Goodreads & on the bookshelves at home to find titles that fit this month’s board.

That’s a Wrap. Here’s the final board for my July BINGO efforts. I managed a triple this month. Not bad, not bad.
Five in a Row. I am getting so close to calling a second BINGO, I want to sneak in some more reading time. My usual routine’s been curtailed for the last handful of days because it’s too HOT to safely walk. (I listen to titles on my e-reader whilst I perambulate.) I’ll be glad when the heat wave passes.
I found a couple of Ali authors. Are there squares you’re having trouble covering? Elza & I are happy to recommend titles! More over on Middle Grade Carousel >>
BINGO Progress. Checking in with progress on my BINGO board. It’s been a good week for reading because I’ve had so much furniture moving/cleaning to do. And that means listening to books on my e-reader. Housework is much less of a chore when it is also my reading time. : )
Summer Reading. The new BINGO board is available from Middle Grade Carousel, and I’ve already done a bit of rummaging through the home shelves & e-reader to see what fits. Some prompts are trickier than others. Which books would you match to this month’s squares?

Not Quite an All-Cover. There’s a scant week left in June, and I’ve managed a second BINGO on my summer reading board. Heading in, I kind of wanted to cover all the squares, but I’ll definitely run out of days before I run out of books. : )
I have books set aside for most of the remaining squares, but I’m not sure how far I’ll get in six days. After spending last month reading lower middle grade quickies, it’s been so nice to tackle longer titles again. Confession: Since I’m a moderator at MGCarousel, I’ve already gotten a peek at July’s BINGO board. I’ll finish up a book or two for June, then focus on next month’s squares!
First Bingo! I’ve been on a reading binge. Some of it’s my crazy summertime schedule, because my brain fogs over during the hot (hot, hot) part of the afternoon. Some of it’s the addition of audio book walks to my exercise routine (usually late at night, when it isn’t quite so hot, hot, hot.)
I’ve been making piles of “next up” books to go for a second BINGO. I’m currently reading Wonder at the Edge of the World, which I intended to fit the “know or wonder in the title” square. Turns out, it has strong STEM/STEAM themes, so I’ll bump it up and read You Don’t Know Everything, Jilly P for that square. “Title starts with W” is a cinch since I picked up the sequel to The Lighthouse Between the Worlds.
How’s your BINGO board filling in?
