2018 Halloween Bingo Update 1 October

So, 13 books read, 12 to go. Several in progress.

 

 

I have no Bingos yet. Weird kitty=read, slashes=called. Today's call may give me some direction. The obvious row is first row down, but Diverse Voices is my 800+ page book. The other one in that row is in progress and won't take long, but the brick might hold out until the end, even with giving it a lot of reading time. I'm inclined to target top row across at this stage, but as I said, today's call could change that. Free square is likely to be the next one I finish reading, so that increases possibilities. :)
