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.

Halloween Bingo 2021: Card, Spells, Markers and Book Pool

Phew!  I’ve had blog display issues for the better part of August due to a stupid WP plugin acting up (and of course, it was a plugin allegedly intended to “facilitate” the import of content into my chosen theme — haha, right), but luckily they were resolved just in time for Halloween Bingo! (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 […]
