BL-opoly: Dice Roll #9 … Parts a, b, c and d!

U P D A T E

____________________________________

Today is June 9 was another roll day for me, and it turnsed out as a result I’ll probably be I was set, reading-wise, for quite some time! 

Let’s take this one step by step …

Beginning on my just-finished square, #16, my first roll today is was a double, which puts me on square 23: The Cape-to-Cairo Railway — read a book set in Africa or by an African author (a square I’ve visited before).  My read for this square will be was Aminatta Forna’s The Memory of Love.
Finished June 16, 2019.

Curiously enough, in a repeat of my Memorial Day results, my next roll again puts me on the BookLikes square.

 

The Spin-the-Wheel Decide gives gave me two extra rolls …

… the first one of which takes took me to square 35: The European Vacation — read a book set in Europe or by a European author, or that involves travel by boat or with a boat on the cover.  There are plenty of choices for this one so I’ll make it a spur-of-the-moment pick, which means that for the time being my little helpers get another refreshment break.
Decided on Israel Zanwill’s The Perfect Crime, aka The Big Bow Mystery. 
Also finished on June 16, 2019.

And with my final roll I pass GO and finally end up on square 9: The Stay-Cation — read a book involving a visit to a museum, concert, library or part, or by an author whose first or last name begins with a letter in R-E-L-A-X.  Again plenty of choices, so in the interim more break time for Sunny and Charlie!
Decided on John Le Carré’s A Murder of Quality.
Finished on June 19. 2016.

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 […]
