I've added my second, black out only, bingo card to the game:

 

 

I haven't made any decisions beyond blacking out the first card. I usually lose steam part way through October, so it's unlikely I'll actually manage to black out the entire second card, but it's always fun to try!

Proposing an unofficial buddy read
Houses of Stone - Barbara Michaels

I noticed that Murder By Death has Houses of Stone by Barbara Michaels on her list of reads. I had tons of fun with our Ammie Come Home buddy read two years ago, and thought I would propose a follow-up!

 

Houses of Stone is available on kindle and nook book for $6.99. It's also in print in paperback, and is available on amazon for $7.99, and through the book depository for slightly more at $8.60 (US) for the overseas players.
