Kim DeCina (ladyindigo) | 17 comments This is my thread for tracking my moves in the game Bookopoly. Per rules, three moves at a time can be in play.

Once a move is determined, I have 4 weeks to read the book or else suffer a penalty.

For purchasing property (optional), I have 1 week to read the book once it is determined or else lose the purchase. Books for purchasing property must be 280-420 pages.

Give dates for every movement, book selections, etc.

Dates: Dec 1., 2015 to Dec 31, 2016

oh wow, good luck with Vanity Fair! That was a tough read & pretty thick too.

'tough' because I didn't care for any of the characters ;p

LOL! On Chapter 10 now and the author tends to go on some, but I'm loving how none of the characters are likable - the author's so sarcastic about it and makes them all really ridiculous but weirdly endearing. It's like It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia as a period piece.
