Summer Bingo - Update

Just a quick update, now that two more squares are occupied by sheep - Space Opera and Travel.


Han Solo At Stars' End filled the Space Opera / Sci-Fi spot.


The travel spot, I originally intended for another book, or at least another kind of book altogether. However, Juliet Takes a Breath is a bout different kinds of journeys - as the MC's personal journey is closely linked to her taking a trip to Portland (and later also to Miami), therefore satisfying my expectations of a travel book being about both the change of location and the changes to the characters brought about by the trip.
