I have lived in Seattle now for almost five years and SOMEHOW I never knew about the library’s summer bingo. The Summer Adult Book Bingo is a chance for readers to win some pretty cool prizes, and to read a lot of books of course! You have the option of submitting a normal bingo card, or you can submit a blackout card, which means you have to read 24 books.
If you submit a normal bingo card, you are entered into a drawing for a gift card from an independent bookstore. If you submit a blackout card you are entered into the grand prize drawing of scoring a season subscription pass to the Seattle Arts & Lectures (SAL) series. SAL brings in some of the most popular and rising authors, poets, journalists, and other important figures in the literary world. Basically it’s a bookworm’s dream to score one of these season subscriptions.
Summer Bingo began on May 14th and goes through September 3rd. If you are in the Seattle area I would highly recommend playing!
If you have any suggestions on what I could read I would REALLY appreciate it — especially any of the “suggested by” squares. So, if you are a librarian or an independent bookseller let me know what you think I should read. If you are younger than 28 or older than 28 let me know what I should read! (these will help my “young person” and “elder” squares)
If you have any other suggestions for other squares, I’ll take those too! The more the merrier. 🙂
I’ll make sure to give updates as the summer goes by. I’m going for a normal bingo, but if possible, I would love to do a blackout. WE SHALL SEE.
Does your local library or bookstore do a summer reading challenge? Let me know if they do, I’d love to hear about it! 🙂
