Have you had your fill of cliched book reviews? Then give this a try...
The brain child of Book Examiner, Michelle Kerns, Book Review Bingo is an game every bibliophile ought to try. Here's how to play:
- Begin with the top 20 most annoying book review cliches
- Print off the Bingo cards (below)
- Mark off a square every time you run across one in book review
So why is Kerns promoting this new game? She sees it as kind of a wake-up call. "...unless book reviewers quit with the knee-jerk reviewerspeak, we will lose the hearts and minds of everyone who is even remotely partial to the Great Literary Discussion"
