Book Bingo

Postby Prof. Tarma Amelia Black » Fri Sep 01, 2017 12:02 am

The start of the school year can be quite exciting with new classes to look forward to. Something the Book Club team has reminisced about, is receiving book lists. With that in mind, we have an exciting challenge for you to participate in: Book Bingo!

Instead of presenting you with a traditional book list, we’ll be handing out cards with 25 criteria relating to books. These will be laid out in a 5 by 5 grid — and it will be up to you to find books that fit these criteria. Each person who signs up in this thread will receive a different card, although there will be some overlaps in the criteria.

In order for your book to count, you’ll need to post something around the Book Club of at least 80 words for every book that forms part of your card. This doesn't have to be just a series of reviews: you might present a new author in The Bookshelf or start a conversation about something more general you noticed in several books in Between the Pages. If someone has already started a topic about your book, author or subject, please contribute to that rather than starting a brand new one of your own. Also, make sure the review or discussion is yours and based on your own thoughts while reading: lifting a review from Goodreads or elsewhere on the internet is categorically not allowed. Please read the respective overview posts before posting.

We’ll be offering three tiers of rewards for card completion. While you’re more than welcome to keep track of your progress on your card (each card will be drawn up in a Google spreadsheet), you’ll need to drop an email to hol.bookclub @ gmail.com (without the spaces) with links to your posts so that we can verify this. Each tier can only be redeemed once.

Tier 1: Single row or column or diagonal completion

For the first row/column/diagonal that you complete, you’ll receive 200 beans.

Tier 2: I, H, Z, N pattern completion

For the first pattern that you complete, you’ll receive 500 beans. Please note that only a maximum of 3 books from the previous tier can count towards this tier.

Tier 3: Super Bingo

Should you complete your entire card, you’ll receive 1000 beans and the Book Bingo Winner award.


Note: All books chosen for Book Bingo should be HOL appropriate.

The deadline for tier/card completion for the 2017/2018 Book Bingo Challenge is 30 June 2018.

Sign up below to participate! Please include your email address as well (but add spaces), so that you can be emailed a card. The first set of cards will be sent out around 10 September, but you’re welcome to sign up anytime before June 2018.
