Ahh I’ve already gotten a bingo and it’s only mid-month! Maybe I can clear the board for the first time EVER?


That’s fantastic! I don’t remember the last time I got a bingo lol

I haven’t in the last few months! I never pick out books based on the prompts so it changes the game of trying to figure out how the books I have read can fit the board.

Pretty slow moving this month buuuut I still think I’ll be able to manage a bingo because I’m currently reading a book with characters who use magic (Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Toni Adeyemi) and listening to an audiobook by a new-to-me author (The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander).


I have my first ever Bookish Bingo, so yay! I’m going to keep going though and see how many more I can get before the end of the month!


Congratulations on your Bookish Bingo!

How did you edit the bingo board so the book covers are on it? I’ve seen it done a lot and always wanted to try it but not sure how to edit it.

I use Canva! It’s a graphic design app/website. I upload the board and find the covers and then just position them over the prompts.


Congrats on your spooky Bookish Bingo!

Also if you have an android you can edit pics in your gallery and overlay them with other pics in your gallery. So if you have the bingo board saved and a screenshot or pic of the book cover you can edit the bingo board in your gallery and overlay the book image wherever u want on the board. Thats how I do it! And thats for galaxy droids but im sure iPhones have some similar mechanism :woman_shrugging:t4:


I’m looking for a recommendation for a book set at a convention. I’m coming up empty.

I got my first bingo for the month today also.
