CHALLENGE: CBC Books Bingo Challenge

I so enjoyed the Canadian Reading Bingo from last year, but the Random House Bingo this year isn't Canadian focused. I have eventually found this Bingo card at Goodreads and the list of ideas/suggestions for each category. I don't really hang at GR; I'm a librarything kinda girl. Anyway, I've copied this and plan to use it, adapting where needed.
