Bingo plate for African Bingo 2021

Are you up for a Bingo challenge?
The rules are simple: You can go for one row, two rows, three rows or a full Bingo card – you decide. You can use books you are reading for other challenges, but not the same book twice for the bingo. (Challenge runs from today to the end of 2021)
Set up a discussion with your book list in this folder – and declare how many rows you aim for.
If you want to narrow some of the categories (say make the Prize Winner a Nobel prize winner, feel free)
This thread is for general discussion of the challenge, possible books etc. Have fun!
