Mod post: 4th quarter and Blackout drawings...

Our 4th quarter drawing will take place tomorrow (Dec. 28th). So far only clea2011 is eligible for this drawing. (If you feel this is in error, please let me know.)

Our blackout drawing will take place on December 31st. So far both fionnabhar and justjo2u are eligible for this drawing.

Also, over the next few days, I'll try to get posts up with the new rules as well as a list of potential players. I'm hoping to have the card posted by Saturday.

Both keli and I are looking forward to starting the new game, and we hope you all are too!

Please comment in this post each time you achieve a bingo.

~Established Buddy Reads~

The following is a list of the Buddy Reads set up thus far. Our goal is to start a new buddy read each month. Please feel free to join in any of the established buddy reads, or suggest new ones in the comments! I believe most members here (and most definitely keli and myself) are up for more than one buddy read, so if you need a buddy, please comment and let us know!

Just before each buddy read is set to start, we will make a dedicated post for that book which will then be linked here.

**Note: While you can count only one book for the 'Buddy Read' square, you are more than welcome to take part in as many of the buddy reads as you wish. You can then use those books to fill other suitable squares if you already have the buddy read square filled.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask!

Bingo Squares Explained

Over 400 pages long - If using a kindle or other ebook reader it won't always tell you the page count, but goodreads has other editions if you need to verify the length of the book.
A favorite re-read - This is your chance to revisit one of your favorites!
A classic - A novel published in the past that stands the test of time.
From an ongoing/new book series - Have a series you've been enjoying reading? Dying to start a new series? This is the square for that.
Color in the title - The title of the book needs to reference a color. For example, I am reading the Orange Cat by Kelley Armstrong.

Set on or near a holiday - The plot itself doesn't have to revolve fully around the holiday. If a holiday is mentioned, you can use it here.
A mystery - Genre of fiction usually involving a mysterious death or a crime to be solved.
One word title - "The" counts as a word, so think again! ;-)
TV tie-in/turned into a tv show - This would be the place for any novels based on popular tv shows, or those books that have been turned into tv shows (your GoT books, your Shannara Chronicles, your Sookie Stackhouse books, etc.).
Horrible cover art - If you think the cover is ugly, then you've filled this square.

~LJ Book Bingo - Rules Post~

First of all, both keli and I would like to welcome you to not only the bingo game, but the community as well. We thought a community would be a nice way to keep certain information easily accessible to all participants as well a centralized location to announce drawings/winners. However, our intent is that the bulk of the activity still take place in our personal journals.

Start date: January 1st, 2017
End date: December 31st, 2017

Hosted by: keli andstellar_raven
