Book Review Bingo. . .

This made me laugh (and cringe a bit as I've probably been guilty of using quite a few of these, both in writing reviews and as a sales rep) but a book reviewer has now created Bingo cards for book reviews. You could play the game during book club discussions or while reading your favourite newspaper reviews or listening to book shows on the radio. Sales reps could secretly play it at sales conference or while ploughing through catalogue copy. And I think you could challenge yourself to find which book contains the most superlatives on its jacket blurbs with bonus marks if you get Bingo out of it. Or find the best, funniest or most ridiculous "x meets x".

I once worked for a company where every sales rep would shake with silent laughter every time an editor called a book "achingly poetic".
