martin eden | 405 comments Task 3: read a book with the word thief in its title.

I'd like to read House of Thieves by Charles Belfoure. Hope I can find it easily.

martin eden | 405 comments I'm on page 57 and I'm enjoing it. I wonder if Belfoure's first job (architect) influences his writing style...

martin eden | 405 comments We were lost on an unknown planet, stuck with aliens! But thanks to our superheroin, Super H, we managed to fix our spaceship and flee! Ready for new adventures!

While we were coming back to our galaxy, our HQ on Earth sent us a message with a new mission, warning us cause to reach our goal, we have to overcome a very special obstacle: the tea ceremony! And we HATE tea, we can't bear its smell, we can't drink it without throwing up! But, we are brave, we are strong, we are self confident, so we shall overcome!

Step 1: Boil
• Read a book with the title or author's name beginning with one of the letters: B, O, I or L.

Step 2: Type of Tea
Read a book with a colour on the cover that matches the kind of tea you want.
Black - Black tea
Green - Green tea
White - Iced tea

Step 3: Sugar?
No sugar - Read a stand alone book
A spoon of sugar - Read book 1 in any series
Two spoons - Read book 2 in any series
