First of all, a big, big Thank You to Moonlight and Obsidian for hosting this very fine reading game! Nothing like Halloween Bingo to bring one out of a chronic reading slump this year!
I'm way too lazy right now--as well as pressing on time a little bit--to post a full official update (like my super organized ones from previous. But it's Halloween, and I've been avoiding the blogosphere for as much as I could these past few days, if only to try to finish those last Halloween Bingo books I have lined up.
Unfortunately, times have been busy, and as much as I'd hoped and planned, I'm certain I won't be getting a black-out.
I DID recently finish Spinning Silver and Small Town Spin, which got me a couple more Bingos. And knowing that that last square called would add a couple more Bingos, I wasn't too concerned about waiting for the last Bingo square call. I've even stopped counting Bingos anyway, feeling much more impressed with how many books I've managed to read this month than anything else, really... hehe
Meanwhile, I'm going to try to at least finish reading The Haunted Hotel by Wilkie Collins tonight, in the spirit of Halloween, which leaves my final and last read, Midnight Blue-Light Special possibly hanging. I certain I won't finish it before the end of the day, so either I'll stick to my guns and just finish it after the game is over without a Black-out, or I'll try to insert a short Edgar Allan Poe from the massive volume of short story collection I have sitting on my shelf and complete the game with a Blackout.
We'll see... especially since I'm not certain I'll finish The Haunted Hotel before the end of the night either.
