Congratulations to vel veeter for being the first to BINGO on July 17.
Welcome to the cbr13bingo August check-in!
Put some sunscreen on and grab a beverage for hydration.
There are 28 Cannonballers playing, and you have posted 168 reviews.
This post is a place for you to ask questions, ask for recommendations for categories. You can always post your questions in our Facebook group – Cannonball Read Book Chat, or on Twitter @cannonballread. Finally, we’ll be posting administrative notes and reminders.
Photos and Images: For the categories that ask for an image on the cover (Flora, Cityscape, People, Landscape and Fauna), we ask that you provide an image of the cover, but it doesn’t have to be a picture you take yourself. The only category where we ask you for your own image is Shelfie. While we would love to see your bookshelf – physical or digital, if providing a picture is too much of a barrier to posting the review, we would rather have the review. And if there is anyway I can help, let me know in the comments, or use the Contact Form.
If you have any questions at all about Bingo, ask in the comments or use the Contact Form. If you have questions not related to bingo, please keep those to the comment section. I can’t guarantee any non-bingo questions will be answered helpfully.
All participants and their bingo review number as of 5 pm EST August 3. If you have posted a review on or after 5 pm EST on August 3, it will not be reflected on this count until the September Check-In 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 cbr13bingo.
