Halloween Bingo 2018 Update 21 October

Well, Rows 4 and 5 down have all been read and the next book I finish will complete row 3 down and give me a second Bingo. Yay! It will also put me one book away from top row across Bingo, but I have a long way to go to finish that one.

 

Weird kitty=read, slash=called

 

Meanwhile I have two books as yet unstarted and only 10 days left. I think Blackout is not in the cards for me. I also have a few long books in progress that may or may not get finished before Halloween.

 

I think November is going to be for finishing my Bingo books, finishing my Netgalley books, and reading samples.
