For the rest of the read-a-thon we are going to play Scrabble!

Each day of the week I’m going to pull 7 Scrabble letters and your goal will be to find the best word you can with those letters. I’ll write them down on this post, but also as a new comment in the discussion, so you’ll know when a new game starts.

If your answer is a word related to books or reading (e.g. page, cover, chapter, etc.), you win 10 points bonus.

To help you get this bonus, we’re exceptionally allowing first names, last names and places names, but they have to figure in a book! If your answer is one such name, please write down from which book it comes.

We won’t have double/triple letters or words as it is a bit complicated without a board.

Please write your answers under spoiler tags to give other members a chance to find a word without being influenced.
Spoiler tags are created when you write < spoiler> before the text you want to hide and < / spoiler> after, without the spaces.

Please add up the points of your word in your post, referring to the chart below.

description

You can enter an answer for a past day, but please tell me for which day it is.

To spice it up, you can use the letters from the day before you haven't used (e.g. if you entered "wind" on Sunday, you can use TNI on Monday). This only works for the letters of the day before, no hoarding of several days of leftover letters will be allowed ;)

Wednesday: DLUYEFD
Thursday: FSEGIHA
