Use this thread to request books when you land on a Unpurchased Property. IF the property has been purchased, please make your request directly into the thread that the owner has set up for that property, per the list below.

Things to Remember:

1. Only 1 request per post (if you have rolled 3 times and therefore have 3 requests, then make 3 posts)

2. As you roll the dice and make requests for book choices for yourself, remember to take the time to make choices for others who have posted requests, so they can start reading

3.If there is more than one unanswered request AND the requests are from more than one player, please respond to a number of requests (not just 1). If all outstanding requests are from the same player, please only respond to one.
(ie. if there are 2 requests outstanding but both are from Bea then only respond to 1. However if the 2 requests outstanding are from separate players, say Bea and Charity, then please respond to both, if you have the time)

4. After you receive your books, if you intend to purchase the property, please list your intention here: Properties FOR SALE

message 8: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 2587 comments I rolled and landed on black beauty - can someone please pick a book for me? ;)


message 9: by Kaitlin (new)

Kaitlin | 39 comments I landed on Roll My Thunder, Hear My Cry. Thank you in advance for the book suggestion.


message 10: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 2587 comments ok Kaitlin - i'll pick for you ;)

I'm going to give you 2 so you have a choice

- Ready Player One
- Orange Is the New Black

I gave both of these 4 stars, one thing to note about OITNB - if you have watched the TV show, try to forget it, because it is completely different


message 11: by Kaitlin (new)

Kaitlin | 39 comments Thanks for the picks Dee, it's quite a coincidence as I actually just bought Ready Player One yesterday since I was at a used book store... how crazy. I'll go ahead and pick for you, now that I know the rules (sorry would have picked earlier but for some reason I didn't think anyone could pick for anyone). So, sadly I have not read any of the books on your list, so my two choices are purely based on interest alone. If these don't work or you don't have access to either of these two, let me know and I'll re-pick.

Stolen Years: Stories of the Wrongfully Imprisoned
The House We Grew Up In


message 12: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 2587 comments I actually have them both (arcs) so I'll have to peruse my other challenges to see what one fits


message 13: by Amanda (new)

Amanda | 380 comments As posted previously, I've landed on Alice in Wonderland. Hit me up!


message 14: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 2587 comments ok here you go - like Kaitlin, i'm going to give you 2 picks

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall -I'll admit that I HATED Wuthering Heights, so was worried about reading/listening to this, but I quite enjoyed it

Stone Mattress: Nine Tales - i've heard good things about it

Ditto! BBC miniseries was pretty good too :)

Thanks Dee, going to see which one I can get on audio from the library right now, which will mean I won't get the 7 day part met, but that's ok.

And I've ordered the book of Stone Mattress, and the audio of Tenant, as i was going to do both of them in the next 3 months ( they are on my standby list, but I can bump them ).

Will use whichever arrives first.


message 17: by Karen (new)

Karen (karenofthebookworm) I landed on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, could someone please select a book for me.

I think I have read only one book on your list, so I am giving you 2 options of what look like interesting books

1888: London Murders in the Year of the Ripper and Blood Work: A Tale of Medicine and Murder in the Scientific Revolution


Lyn (Readinghearts) (lsmeadows) | 2827 comments Mod
I landed on Charlotte's Web. Will someone please pick 3 books for me to choose from?

Thanks


message 20: by Marina (new)

Marina (sonnenbarke) | 1400 comments I rolled and landed on Black Beauty, would be glad if someone could pick 2-3 books for me. I say 2-3 because not all of them are readily available, as some are at my parents' and I won't be visiting soon. Thanks :-)


message 21: by Marina (new)

Marina (sonnenbarke) | 1400 comments Ooops, Amanda and I have posted together, so I'm going to delete my recommendations for Karen. Sorry!


message 22: by Lahni (new)

Lahni | 638 comments I landed on Treasure Island. I'd like 3 books picked for me please.

Thanks Lahni, that's a difficult choice because all the books you've picked for me are ones I want to read soon :-) Anyway, I'll pick The Taming of the Shrew, as I intended to read it for this month's shelf anyway! Thanks again!
