2019 Summer Book Bingo is Here!
May 14, 2019
Everyone’s favorite free summer reading challenge is back for both adults and kids! Download your Adult Board here or your Kid Board here.
Keep track of your summer reads from now until September 3, 2019 by writing the title and author in the matching square, and submit your board by mail, in person, or through social media for a chance to win awesome prizes! Book titles may be used only once per card, and only one entry per person.
Need suggestions for your squares?
Ask a librarian for recommendations! Stop by any branch or go to www.spl.org/yournext5.
For your “SAL Speaker” square, and many other categories, consider upcoming SAL authors like Min Jin Lee, Malcolm Gladwell, Amor Towles, and many more. See lectures.org for our full line-up.
Book Bingo also has a vibrant social media following, so keep the conversation going by using the hashtag #BookBingoNW2019 wherever you post.
For “Recommended by an Independent Bookseller,” consider visiting one of many SAL’s bookstore partners. They always have great recs!
How do I win?
Bingo: Complete a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line! Turn in your card and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a gift card to an independent bookstore.
Blackout: Complete all 25 squares! Turn in your card and you’ll be entered into a drawing for one of three grand prizes, including a subscription to the 2019/20 SAL series of your choice!
