2020 Book Bingo

WHAT IF I NEED SOME READING IDEAS?
Click on the bingo squares above for suggestions or see all the booklists here. You can also ask a librarian for recommendations with Your Next 5 Books.

You can also check the hashtag #BookBingoNW2020 on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to get ideas from fellow readers.

How to Play

Book titles may be used only once per card, and only one entry per person. For readers 18 and older.

For the “Recommended by an Independent Bookseller” square, consider visiting one of SAL’s bookstore partners: Ada’s Technical Books; BookTree Kirkland; Book Larder; Edmonds Bookshop; Elliott Bay Book Company; Island Books; Magnolia’s Bookstore; Open Books: A Poem Emporium; Phinney Books; Queen Anne Book Company; Secret Garden Books; Third Place Books (Lake Forest Park, Ravenna, and Seward Park); 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—including a subscription to the 2020/21 SAL series of your choice!

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:

  1. Drop off your card (or a copy) at any location of The Seattle Public Library once we reopen.
