Everything You Need To Know About Summer Reading Bingo 2022
The card, the rules, the prizes
Welcome to the official What To Read If Summer Reading Bingo page.
How To Play
Get a copy of your card here.
Fill it in with books you read between now and Labor Day.
We’ll run on the honor system, but I’m asking everyone to use each book for a single category (i.e. if you read a banned book by a new-to-you author, you can only use it for one square).
Submit your final card here by Friday, September 9 (Don’t worry. I’ll remind you.) for the chance to win prizes.
If you get Bingo, you’ll get one entry to the raffle. If you fill out your entire card, you’ll get two!
Win Fabulous Prizes
We have so many great prizes this year (and more are still rolling in!). While everyone can play along, only subscribers are eligible to win a prize. (You can subscribe here.)

My go-to rec is The House in the Cerulean Sea!! It is heartwarming with an interesting twist as the main characters are magical children in an orphanage.
What do "share what to read if" "swap recs with a friend" and "submit a rec to what to read if" mean and how do you do them and mark them on your card?
