Summer Reading Bingo Wrap-Up

Well, what do you know, I got a BINGO!!

The book that got me to the bingo was Parnassus on Wheels by Christopher Morley (book with only words on the cover).  It was a nice short (142 pages) read about a travelling bookstore that I enjoyed more than I expected.

I did manage to fill two other squares on my card in August:

  • Biography or memoir:  Year of No Sugar: A Memoir by Eve O. Schaub. As the title suggests, this book is about the author and her family going for a year without sugar.  I enjoyed reading this and it has inspired me to pay closer attention to the amount of hidden sugar in what I am eating.
  • With a one-word title:  Landline by Rainbow Rowell.  In an exception to the general rule, I think this would make a better movie than it did a novel.  It is a story about a woman who stays home in L.A. at Christmas while her husband and daughters go to Nebraska and in a parallel to a key point in the couple’s relationship she communicates with her then-boyfriend via a yellow telephone in her bedroom at her mother’s home.    Unfortunately I didn’t find the plot engaging and despite the fact that the main character is a comedy writer, I didn’t find it funny either.

Did you play Summer Reading Bingo?  How did you do?
