Heather and Susan D:

Looking at Week 6, I can plan for these boxes:

- Book published in the 60s or 70s

- Book with emotion in the title

- Book with a proper noun

Put me down for a book less than 100 pages too - I have one!!

I can probably find something for just about any other box, so if you ladies want to map out your books, leave me one more box for Week 6 - just let me know what it is.

THIS IS THE BOX< I DONT HAVE young adult 2014

FOR WEEK 3, I have already read the first top row from rollover books.

I am working on how to place books for a second bingo.   I have about 15 books to place so let me know how we can get some team bingos.

 

I have already read  a book on the west coast, Row 2 column 5,

I have read books that fit the entire 3rd row, but have not read the last box of FIRE< WATER< EARTH OR AIR.   But I do have books that work for that.

and I could down the middle column but I havent read a non fiction nor a mountain setting, but again have books I could read. 

I could even go down the last column but again  have not read yet,  the  FIRE< WATER< EARTH OR AIR.

Thanks that is very clear,  

Eden, Ohio by Shawne Johnson, works for week 3, a s bottom corner Author with J,  but you are rolling books over for week 3 right?  or it works for a book publishs in 2004 bottom corner week 3.  

 

Why dont we use EDEN for WEEK 6

IF you both feel like I am wasting my book for week 3, please speak up.  I am flexible about moving the books to another week.   I thought maybe we could get second place , but I dont want to waste them.    I can move the books to week six.  

 

RIght now I have 2 bingos row 1 and row 3 for week six.

Hmm, here is the goal for week 4

This week's prize:  Individual challenge - one book credit to each player who completes two individual BINGOs this week (past weeks' BINGOs will not count toward this challenge)

I can move all my books from week 3 to week 4, or beyond.

I'll leave it to you and "other" Susan to decide about whether to use your books for Week 3. Honestly all my reading has been for Weeks 5 and 6. I read so many fewer books I feel like I needed the head start to make a difference in the last two weeks. smiley

Week 4 is an individual challenge - which I won't be in the running for, so again I'm just focused on Weeks 5 and 6.

I dont think I will do week 3 since it doesnt really help us much.   I will focus on where to put these book in Week 6.   and I am going to go for week 4, cause I need 2 bingos to get a prize.   So reshuffling my books that I was using for week 3, and will see how I can make a team effort for weeks 5 and 6.

Susan R, we are not going to get 8 bingos in Week 5.   If you get one, that still means that Susan L and I need to make 3.5 bingos.   I am scattered all over the board for week 5 so far with only 4 books for that week.  

 

Can you see if you can get those books to work in week 6?

Heather - I worked all my Week 5 books into Week 6 (the one's I've already read anyway).  I also put Eden into my Week 6 list.

That leaves me with one stray book. The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden.

I updated my original post above.
