The CBR11 Book Bingo Reading Challenge is almost over! Bingo ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on Thursday, October 31, 2019.
There are 48 Cannonballers playing, and you have posted over 600 reviews.
This post is a place for you to ask questions, ask for recommendations for categories, and find a review buddy if you need one. You can always post your questions in our Facebook group – Cannonball Read Book Chat, or on Twitter @cannonballread. This is also where we post important administrative issues.
Check your tags! Please remember to tag your bingo reviews with cbr11bingo, and not any other variation. I am still finding varieties of the tag, so please, when using the autofill, make sure you are selecting cbr11bingo. Please do not add the # in your tag, just the text cbr11bingo, all one word. Thanks!!!
Also, please remember to clearly indicate the category at the top or bottom of the review. My eyeballs thank you.
If you are looking for free ebooks, particularly to fill the Classic category, check out Project Gutenberg.
Reviews of books you do not finish are fine for Bingo. As Mswas says, “life is too short for bad books.”
All participants and their bingo review number as of 12 am EST October 7. If you have posted a review on or after October 7, it will not be reflected on this count until the November Wrap Up post.
If your count is different from mine, please let me know in the comments. Also please make sure you have tagged your bingo reviews with cbr11bingo.

The printable official game card and rules are on our kickoff post. Head over there if you need to make your reading plan. You can join in any time before October 31, 2019.
Looking at 2020
After the game wraps up on October 31, there will be a survey to see what you liked, what you didn’t like and suggestions for how we can make next year’s game better. If you are interested in helping develop ideas for next year’s game, we’ll ask about that on the survey too.
Tell us, what are your questions, comments or concerns? How can we help you?
We are so excited to read the reviews you write over the next three weeks!
