As usual I haven't been good about doing updates and reviews, but I am marking my card and following everyone else's progress. :)  I didn't have book picks planned for the various squares and have just been reading whatever fits from my TBR pile I'm in the mood for which has worked well. I'm leaning heavily towards my mystery related squares and avoiding the horror and paranormal ones, but I figured that would happen and I wasn't planning on trying to black out my card anyway. At this point I've actually got two potential bingos going with just 11 books/short stories read, so I'm happy.  All the posts and discussions about classic mysteries this year have been awesome too!
