Seattle Public Library and Seattle Arts and Lectures put together another fun summer reading challenge this year– Book Bingo for adults and teens!
Again this year, one of the squares is “recommended by a librarian or independent bookseller.” Many Seattle area stores have even printed out copies of the bingo cards for customers who want to participate. At Queen Anne Book Company, we’re putting together ideas for every square so we’re ready to help!
Here are the rules, from the Seattle Public Library website:
How to Play
Book titles may be used only once per card, and only one entry per person. For readers 18 and older. [For teens, there’s a special Teen Bingo card.]
For the “Recommended by an Independent Bookseller” square, consider visiting one of SAL’s bookstore partners: Elliott Bay Book Company, Madison Books, Phinney Books, Queen Anne Book Company, Ravenna Third Place Books, Secret Garden Books, Seward Park Third Place Books and University Book Store.
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 book store.
Blackout: Complete all 25 squares! Turn in your card and you’ll be entered in a drawing for one of three grand prizes of tickets to 2019/20 SAL events.
How do I submit my board for the prize drawing?
Submit your completed card (with either a bingo or a blackout) in one of the following ways:
- Drop off your card (or a copy) at any location of The Seattle Public Library.
- Mail your card (or a copy) to:
Seattle Arts & Lectures
340 15th Ave. E., Suite 301
Seattle, WA 98112
- Post a photo of your completed card to one of the Library’s or SAL’s social media channels using the hashtag #BookBingoNW2019.
