Well, it’s February 28, meaning it’s the last day of Pretty Deadly Reviews’s seasonal Bookish Bingo reading challenge. I’m always sad for a season to end, but tomorrow means we get a new one. BRING ON MORE BINGO.
(Fact: whether you are 10, 20, or 60, bingo will bring out the competitiveness in you. I’ve been in a room full of high-strung college kids trying to win free groceries and assorted goodies at least five separate times. I know this.)
Here’s how I did:
I got bingo three times over, so I feel pretty good! Remember, my TBR jars choose most of my reading, so it’s entirely random for me. I didn’t exactly make the jar system with the intent to do true-blue Bingo, but it looks like that’s the result.
