2017 Bingo Challenge – Completed!

bingoYay Me! I’ve completed my Reading Bingo Card!! (ed. no I haven’t, I have 2 more to read. I posted by mistake but I’ll leave it for now)

Now, having said that, this might not be the final version. I have a mind to change out the audio book at some point at the very least. The one I used is one that I think might have been very much abridged, not the full novel so I might get one from the library through Overdrive before the end of the year.

Am still working on the Cross Canada Reading Challenge and the 20 Books of Summer challenge but expect to be able to complete those on time. And at the moment, almost all of the authors but one are either Canadian born or are Canadian residents/citizens even if born elsewhere. They are considered Canadian writers. The only one that isn’t is the audio book, another reason to replace it. Still, it’s finished even if I don’t get round to doing that.

I did do a bit of shuffling around as per a suggestion from someone on Goodreads. Here then is the completed “card”:
