Darth Pony's Halloween Bingo 2018 Tracking Post

Update 24/10: Uhhhhhhhhhhh . . . I have a blackout. @.@



Previous Updates:



Update 23/10: The days are blurring together, but somehow I'm only one book away from a reading blackout and then one call away from a total blackout. Who am I and what have I done with the real me?! (Also, I've gotten bingos 5-7 in the last two days.)


Update 20/10: Bingo #4! Four books to read for reading blackout! I found some shorter books to read for two of the squares to keep myself from unnecessarily panicking! Woooo! XD


Update 18/10: I've already far surpassed my own expectations, so I'm going to keep pushing myself until Halloween Bingo is over or it stops being fun. I think if I continue neglecting all other hobbies and non-essential adulting, I might be able to read books for the rest of my squares. I'm probably headed for a book coma like no other come November, but that's two whole weeks away. I'll worry about it then. :P


Update 15/10: I'm sick again. Some sort of stomach bug. Symptoms include suddenly getting tired of light sabers and changing them all to porgs.


Update 14/10: BINGO #3! WOOOO!!!


Update 08/10: BINGO #2!!! :O


Update 06/10: BINGO!!!! WOOOOOOOO!!!! :D :D :D


Update 30/9: Four possible near-bingos brewing. Wooo! TEN BOOKS READ THIS MONTH! WOOOOO! (I swear I don't say "wooo" this much in my everyday life. I don't think so, anyway...)


Update 28/9: I now have three rows that just need one square called to be bingo eligible. Wooo! Also, I've read NINE books this month?!? That's twice my average! Woooo!


Update 24/9: Hey, if Shifters gets called I'll actually have a bingo! Anticipation! Wooo!


Update 18/9: Thus far illness and insomnia have worked in my favor, but I'm pretty sure I can't keep this up indefinitely. Sooner or later I'm going to hit a wall and start wishing I wasn't quite so fond of longer novels. Oh well. In the meantime, four squares! Woo! Six books read! Wooo! Almost one whole row called! Woooo!


Update 11/9: Three squares! Wooo! I have no strategy! Woooo! XD


Update 09/9: I marked off my first square! Wooo!
