A Heart in a Body in the World by Deb Caletti is a good one for the running prompt.

This is exciting! I’m new to the community and this a fun and great way to dive right in!

WOWOWOWOW!!! Congratulations on your triple bingo accomplishment. Demolished your TBR this month.

June BINGO! : Down the far left row:

Rainbow Colors: Book of Candlelight (Ellery Adams)
Character Is Running: Plain Speaking (Merle Miller)
Travel: Flight Or Fright (Stephen King, ed.)
Fatherhood: The Tragedy Of Arthur (Arthur Miller)
Non-Fiction: The Social Contract (Jean Jacques Rousseau)

My favorite fit here is “the book about running.” Plain Speaking is about Harry Truman’s “running” for President. : )


No bingo for me, but this was a fun challenge!

I may still get a book or two finished by tonight, but here is my bingo card so far.
