For those readers who tend to use electronic formats, how do you determine the spine color of a book? Do you head to the library and borrow something? Check on your books at a bookstore? Do you have a better way? I always struggle with the spine tasks. I have a book that would likely fit the pink spine task, but have no way to find out for sure. (Not at library or book store, no pic of spine on Amazon. I already own the e-copy, so don’t want to buy a physical copy.) Thoughts?

I check Mercari to see if the book is for sale there and hope someone posted the spine

Thank you! I usually end up skipping the tasks because they are difficult to confirm. I’ll check out Mercari.

I have a question about the monthly Bingo.
These are suppose to be books we read (past tense) in the month, correct?
I rarely finish a Bingo, and that’s ok. I still print it out to see if a can do one. It’s fun.
I don’t understand how some can get a Bingo on the first day. That is a minimum of reading 4 books in a day.
