​​How to Play

—NetGalley Bingo will run from August 1, 2023 to August 31, 2023.

—Each book or action can only be used for a single square on the board. For example, you cannot use the same book for both “Five-star read” and “Review right after finishing.”

—To score a bingo, you must complete a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal row of five squares.

—Each prompt is open to your interpretation. For example, the “Raise your Feedback Ratio” prompt can mean that you raised it to the recommended 80% or simply that you went up a percentage.
