My Book Bingo Scorecard: 3rd quarter

It's time for a Book Bingo update! I'm actually doing a lot better with this challenge than I expected. I've completed quite a few more squares since the last quarter update, but I still have a lot of reading to do to complete the grid. Some squares will be easier than others to complete.

I need to read:

2 TBR books
3 books from a series
5 books released in 2013
5 books everyone else has read
3 re-reads

Not too bad, but I still think it's going to be a close finish!

  1. You're doing great with this challenge!

  2. Thanks Brandy! It's been a lot of fun filling in the squares. I'd say you should do it with me next year, but I know you're not into keeping a careful record of your reads. The board is going to have a bunch of new categories for 2014. Fun!

  3. Congrats on all that progress!! :D
    Sounds like fun.
