Bingo Reading Challenge - An update!

There was no way we could let our blogs just sit and rot, while we blamed everyone but ourselves for not writing. Deciding to put an end to the hiatus on writing, me and Ishithaa have decided to write on every day of November on alternate days. Today if the post is on my page, tomorrow it will be on hers.....

  1. WOW you go girl! Way to rock that Bingo challenge! ♥

  2. Oh wow! Awesome... You go girl! Did you read the Book Thief? I think it has over 500 pages.. Or you could read A Game of Thrones :)

  3. That's a lot of books. Good job.

  4. That's a really cool and fun bingo card Meena! Never saw one like that before. I especially love that you love The Secret Life of Bees - you inspire me to read that as I wish to write a poem/song about them entitled "Ode to Bees" and I didn't know J.K. Rowling wrote a mystery (another book?!) and that you also love I Am Malala which I haven't read yet, but would love to too. I imagine that that is so inspiring a read! :) Have fun choosing a 500-page book as I'm sure there are many but I cannot think of even one at this time. <3

  5. Book more than 500 pages: War and Peace ? ;) Glad to see you reading a lot. So much fun!

  6. now that's just amazing!! You have so may wonderful books.
