Great TBR for May! Which are you planning to read first?

If I can finish my April list on time Libertie, if not Arsenic and Adobo gets released on the 5th.

Sketched in some books from my TBR and hoping for another good book month.


I also have Rebecca on my TBR for this month! :relaxed:

Do names count for the “one word title” category?

Also, does it count if we’ve begun a book before May, but finish it in May?

Yes, a name could be a one-word title. Example: Rebecca. That one is on my TBR. :slight_smile:

For anyone not familiar with the Little Free Library, here’s a way to find one near you or even establish one yourself.

New here…when do they typically post the “bingo board” for the next month? I am likely not going to finish all the books I was hoping to for May (and unfortunately I have May 2020, not May 2021) cause the wait lists at the library on a bunch of my books were too long, despite putting them on hold May 2. :weary:

Yes. It’s typically a monthly challenge. I have yet to get myself organized to actually complete one! But, fear not, there’s more to come! :smile:
