In which I briefly interrupt Booklikes-opoly

Reblogged from: Moonlight Reader

To talk about the FOURTH ANNUAL GAME OF

Halloween Bingo

For any prospective new players:

Halloween Bingo is the flagship reading game on BL – it’s the first one that OB & I cohosted, all the way back in 2016, so this will be the fourth time that we’ve played!

I am working on this years categories, which will be selected from the last three bingo games, along with – assuming that my creativity doesn’t fail me – a few new ones! Some things don’t change, though, and the seasonal focus on horror, mystery, supernatural, thrillers and suspense remains from year to year.

Autumn is the time that we break into our store of gothic tales, our books about witches and wizards and werewolves and zombies, ghost stories and haunted houses and dark, stormy nights.

As we move into Halloween bingo season, if years past are any indication, you will see a lot of activity as this year’s categories are revealed, the cards are created, reading lists begin to pop up again, and players start posting about their reading plans.

The planned schedule:

8/1/19: As I announced yesterday, I will be drawing the prize winners from last years game of bingo.

8/10/19: The last day of Booklikes-opoly.

8/15/19: I will reveal all of the categories for this year’s game as well as any tweaks or changes to the rules and will open the thread to request bingo cards in the bingo discussion group.

8/30/19: Early reading begins. All players can pre-read one book.

9/1/19: First call and play officially commences

10/31/19: Last call and game ends

This is my favorite part of the reading year. Join us if you’ve not played before and I promise you will have fun! I can hardly wait!

Halloween Bingo 2021: Card, Spells, Markers and Book Pool

Phew!  I’ve had blog display issues for the better part of August due to a stupid WP plugin acting up (and of course, it was a plugin allegedly intended to “facilitate” the import of content into my chosen theme — haha, right), but luckily they were resolved just in time for Halloween Bingo! (Gosh … […]

June 2021 and Mid-Year Reading Recap

Sigh.  Well, I think posting a monthly (and even half-year) reading recap a full three weeks into the next month has to be some sort of record, even for me, but here we are.  And I admit that at this point I’d even been contemplating holding off another week so as to combine this with […]

Dorothy L. Sayers: The Five Red Herrings

Dorothy L. Sayers is occasionally accused of having gotten too caught up in her research for a given book; and the two mysteries that routinely come up in this context are The Nine Tailors (bell ringing, published in 1934) and, well, The Five Red Herrings (1931), which, although chiefly concerned with fishing and painting, also […]
