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.

J.R.R. Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings – Performed by Andy Serkis

In another online community, we recently talked about the new Andy Serkis Lord of the Rings recordings.  Well, it turns out that the pull of The Ring is still mighty strong, for however much it may have been destroyed in Mount Doom. I had barely gotten my hands on these audios and I found I […]
