- Book you could bring up at a literary salon: Poets Translate Poets, ed. Mark Jarman and Paula Dietz
- Classic short story: "The Most Dangerous Game", by Richard Connell
- Picture book: Journey, by Aaron Becker
- Book you were given as a gift but haven't read yet: The Name of the Wind, by Patrick Rothfuss
- Play: Barefoot in Athens, by Maxwell Anderson
- Poem in its original language (not English): "Piedritas en la ventana", by Mario Benedetti
Because we are quite sporting, here is a brief, ESPN-style look at the strategy on display so far. Alyssa read Poets Translate Poets, an erudite collection of translated poetry originally published in the Hudson Review, and thus had a qualifying entry for two separate squares (volume of poetry and literary salon read), and possibly three (depending on her interpretation of "Book originally written in another language"). Her choice to take the literary salon square instead of the volume of poetry suggests that she is making a move on the fifth row, where she has also completed a picture book. Susan's strategy so far seems to be to block anything having to do with "The Most Dangerous Game." Probably because Book Bingo is the most dangerous game of all.
How about you? How is your bingo coming along? Any recommendations for our remaining squares?
