Modern Gypsy 2021 Book Bingo

Run by Shinjini.

“Go for the full house, which means you commit to reading 25 books in 2021.

Pick your rows: Choose a few rows and commit to finishing those during the year.

You can choose two horizontal or two vertical rows, for example, which would mean a commitment to read 10 books during the year.

If you choose one horizontal and one vertical row of books, that gives you 9 books for the year.

Or choose a combination of horizontal, vertical and diagonal rows – choosing 3 rows means a commitment to reading 12-13 books in 2021.”
