Got my official list of #bookspin reads for the month. (Right) the other is holiday reads for a bingo board that‘s more for me and the #wintergames2021 but I‘ll use the numbers for #bookspinbingo to make the board. I have a few library holds that hopefully come in and I can fill those in! It‘s all confusing but I know what I mean! 🤣🤣🤣

TheAromaofBooks haha I actually see exactly what you mean... maybe because I also like complicated setups 😂 2d
Ash.on.the.line @TheAromaofBooks I do as well! Even when I am the only one, I like making things difficult for myself ha! 🤣 2d
TheAromaofBooks Actually, I really like your concept here. I originally started BookSpin thinking I would use it to read a book each month that I've been meaning to read but never have gotten to. But when I added bingo, it turned into 20 books I'm PLANNING to read this month, which isn't exactly the same thing haha So it might be fun to have the reluctant-to-read list for my official numbers, and the planning-to-read list for bingo!! 2d
Ash.on.the.line @TheAromaofBooks yes exactly! Great minds here! 😂 2d

#MistletoeManiacs! We‘ve got some fun and quick ways to gain some early bird points! These tasks can now be completed, although they must be done before December 1st to qualify you for your points.

I can‘t wait to see what you guys plan on reading during the LAST(!) month of 2021, and the #WinterGames. I‘m sure I‘ll be stacking a ton of books from you guys, as per usual! 😜🙈😂

Ottergirl @StayCurious hello! Can‘t wait to start scoring points 😀 7d
PageShifter I started to plan my TBR and now I am wondering if I should include all holiday books while I am planning my books. I am just wondering that holiday books give 25 points but do they give 25 + 15 if you have had them in your TBR? Or can we impulse read holiday themed books and get 25 points every time. Or is it then 25 + 10 points. Sorry for my stupidity xD 7d
StayCurious @PageShifter great question! We ask that you take 25 points for a holiday or wintery book only, even if it‘s in your TBR or is an impulse read. These points are not stackable unfortunately. 7d
PageShifter Thank you!! So it can also be wintery? It can be a horror book setting in wintery cottage?? ( I am weird and love reading these xD ) 7d
StayCurious @PageShifter absolutely! 6d
StayCurious @Melmar @bekakins welcome to my team! Please see my last few posts for details and let me know if you have any questions 2d
