MGR Reading Challenge: 2nd 2017 Book Bingo Completed Card

Welcome back to the 2nd Mocha Girls Read Reading Challenge for 2017.  

How did you do?  Did you get to read the first four book of the months?  Did you get into a completely new genre or read a new author?  If you downloaded a Book Bingo card now is the time to show it off.

I decided to just read and see where the books I read would fall again.  Funny thing is…and again I didn’t complete a single line.  AGH!!  Why didn’t I read a PINK book, or a book that starts with “G”?  ARGH!!  So close!  Here is my card.

Now it’s your turn to show off your Book Bingo cards and enter for your chance to win a new book.  But first, let’s do a review of what Book Bing is, the rules and the prize.

What is Book Bingo? 

Have you played Bingo?  Welllll….Same thing.  Pick a square and read a book that fits the theme of that square.  When you complete two lines, whether it’s a straight line or a diagonal line then you have a bingo.

~ The Rules ~

  • Audiobook, E-books and physical books count.
  • One book per square
  • At the end of April, you must check in here and post your reads.
  • Books must be read from May 1, 2017 to August 31, 2017
  • Authors, no reading your own book, please.
  • Must complete 2 lines.  (Any combination of lines is a bingo)
  • No signing up needed.  Just check in from August 31 to September 7
  • Fill out the Rafflecopter below

~ The Prize ~

You will win a mystery book.  One book will be shipped to you and the title will not be revealed until you open it.

  • How do you fill in the bingo cards Online? And where do you CLICK to get next month’s bingo card! I need HELP!

    • Bernie

      I downloaded the bingo card to my computer and filled out the bingo card in a word document. I filled in the spaces on the bingo card by copying and pasting photos from Amazon and Goodreads of the books that I read. When I was done with the card I uploaded it to this site.

      • Thanks Bernie for the 411. I downloaded the bingo card but I can’t enter anything because I of the layout options. I must have tried every scenario I know to delete the layout option. All it does is delete the entire bingo card. I don’t even know what to say at this point. It can’t be that complicated. Must be..

        • Bernie

          Use layout option “In line with text” for the bingo card.
          Use layout option “In front of text” for all the book pictures.
          The first time is always the hardest ☺
