Can one book count for multiple BINGO squares? Yes! But we encourage you to challenge yourself to read a different book for each category.

Do I have to read a book on the provided lists? No, you are welcome to read any book that fits the category. The lists are suggestions to get you started.

I lost my BINGO card. Can I get another one? Do I have to start over? Yes, you can get another card. No, you don’t have to start over, just mark everything you remember.
