I finished my first booklikes-opoly book, Boy's Life, earlier today (I'll review it tomorrow) and rolled more or less right away because I was itching too!
Starting balance: $20
Gift from the fantastic Line Bookaholic: $30
Gift from another fantastic player As the page turns: $40
Boy's Life (648 pages): $45
My first roll (sorry, don't know why I didn't get the time stamps) was a double:
This took me to New Orleans square 19: Visit the haunted mansion- read a book tagged gothic or horror on GR or that is a ghost story
I rolled again:
This brought me out at Adventureland 27: Climb Tarzan's Treehouse- read a book by an author whose initials can be found in the name "Tarzan" or that has a tree on the cover.
I decided to skip the first square and go with Adventureland 27 and have picked a book that has a tree on the cover: Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. It's a short book which is what I wanted because it means I finish quicker and can roll again! I bloody love rolling!
