    I have no idea but it sounds like a great idea. I’ll keep looking for an update

    You could probably find a template for a Bingo card on the net or else just make a simple one using a table format. People could then take the card and put it on their own post. Once a book was read/reviewed the individual blogger could put a big X over that square. I’m just thinking ideas here, nothing firm in mind yet but will think about it more. Sounds like a fun plan.

    This is a great idea but unfortunately I’m not versed in the technical part of it. I hope you find someone.

    I have no tech advice, Stu, only lots of excitement for your great idea. When you have produced your board, I can’t wait to participate.

    (My solution would be to write it by hand and photograph it for your blog. 😉

    Wouldn’t you know? I think this could work without too much trouble, and I’m extremely eager to play. But, yes, you guessed it–I’m not tech-savvy enough to offer advice. I liked Travellin’ Penguin’s ideas, though, and think they may be helpful.

    I’d advise you to keep asking around. And I’d recommend posting this entry again when more people are back from vacation.

    I’m really keen on this!
