I have a possible bingo developing right down the center! I just need that serial killer spot called & read. I think I'll focus on filling those called squares asap!


I also created a second, unofficial card! I will fill the squares on my official card first, but, since I'm only nine away from filling this one, I needed something to keep me busy in October! Cats mark the called squares, but I'm not reading for this card yet, so nothing to show my completed books!
