BL-opoly: Dice Roll #12, Parts a and b

Today is a roll day for me:  It started with doubles that sent me to another square I’ve visited before (and for a moment had me fearing I’m stuck in a loop, too):

I move to square 26: How? — Read a book that is science fiction or a book with the word “how” in the title.

This is an excellent excuse to listen to the Stephen Fry audio of Douglas Adams’s Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy that I recently acquired.

Length of equivalent print edition: 216 pages
=> + $3 upon completion.

 

 

My next roll — since the first one were doubles — also landed me on a question mark square, but this time one I haven’t visited before:

square 34: When? — Read a book that is time travel or historical fiction, or a book with the word “when” in the title.

I think the BL-opoly gods are telling me to finally get a move on and read C.J. Sansom’s most recent Shardlake book, Tombland, which at this point has been sitting on my shelves for way too long.  So, Tombland it is!

Length: 866 pages
=> + $10 upon completion.

(Gosh … […]

June 2021 and Mid-Year Reading Recap

Sigh.  Well, I think posting a monthly (and even half-year) reading recap a full three weeks into the next month has to be some sort of record, even for me, but here we are.  And I admit that at this point I’d even been contemplating holding off another week so as to combine this with […]

Dorothy L. Sayers: The Five Red Herrings

Dorothy L. Sayers is occasionally accused of having gotten too caught up in her research for a given book; and the two mysteries that routinely come up in this context are The Nine Tailors (bell ringing, published in 1934) and, well, The Five Red Herrings (1931), which, although chiefly concerned with fishing and painting, also […]
