BL-opoly: Dice Roll #7

U P D A T E D

_______________________________

I just about made it through Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility in time to still be allowed to roll today.  Funnily enough, I rolled the same results as with my roll before the last one — a 1+1 double and a 5+4 — even though I’d actually not only gone back to start but also refreshed the page before I rolled for the first time.  Oh well — I guess that comes under the heading of “random”, too, then.

So here we go:

 

 

My first roll takes took me to square 3: School’s Out For Summer — read a book set in a school or college, or considered a “classic”, or that is frequently banned.  I’ve decided to use this square to start my Summer of Sherlock reading program, though not with a book by ACD but with Frank Froest’s Grell Mystery; a crime classic from the early days of the Golden Age of Mysteries.

Length: 304 pages
=> + $3 upon completion
Finished June 5, 2019.

My second roll puts me on square 11: Beach Week — read a book set in a coastal region that you love or would like to visit, or a book with a beach or ocean on the cover.  This one, I’ll have to think about (not that there’s a lack of coastlines I love or would like to visit, but anyway), so in the interim it’s refreshment break time for the crew again:

 

Refreshment time over.  Settled on Julian Symons’s The Belting Inheritance, which has an image of (what I take to be) the Dover Cliffs and the British Channel coast on the cover.
Length: 240 pages
=> + $3 upon completion
Finished June 6, 2019.

J.R.R. Tolkien: The Hobbit – Performed by Andy Serkis

Like its magnificent sequel, The Hobbit is, I think, many things to many people: the first exposition of the universe that would become Middle-earth; prelude to The Lord of the Rings; a bite-sized visit to Middle-earth whenever you don’t feel up to the full blow of the War of the Ring(s); one of the most […]

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 […]
