So–I missed two categories. Not too bad, considering. But now that summer is over–it’s time for BOOKISH BINGO HOLIDAY EDITION! Lots of fun categories to read in October, November, and December–whooo hooo!
(No rest for the wicked. Or the people who have book review blogs.)
Hmmm. Picking one for the “romance” category will be kind of like choosing which one would count toward the “summer release” category last time.
There’s still time to get in on the fun–you can enter until October 15!
