  4. 4. Where did Book Bingo Come From  Click to edit Master text styles  Second level  Third level  Fourth level  Fifth level
  5. 5. What did we do next? We are looking at running Book Bingo for our Adult Summer Reading program this year. Readers read a book for each square on the bingo card and once they have filled in a row or column they go in the draw for a prize. The Bingo form which our Book Bingo is based on is attached. This is where you come in. The RA group would like to create a handout of "Suggested Reads" which has some titles for each square on the card. To do this we need your help! Can you send me some summer read book suggestions and which square or squares applies to this book? As an optional extra - It would also be great if you could write a review for at least one of your suggestions on the catalogue.
