________________

 

Today is May 30 was a roll day for me, and having finished my previous book, I am was allowed to roll again.

 

My first roll turned out to be the smallest of doubles, so I rolled again:

 

 

 

My first roll put me on square 25: The Summer Blockbuster -- read a book (standalone or in a series) that has been adopted for film or TV.  Hmm.  Will have to think about that one.  In the interim, my little helpers get another refreshment break ...

Break over.  Decided on Witi Ihimaera's The Whale Rider.

Read and finished on Friday, May 31.

 

Length: 152 pages

... while I move on to square 33: The European Vacation -- read a book set in the UK or by an author whose first or last name begins with any letter in L-O-N-D-O-N.

 

My last read was very intense, so I need a bit of a change of pace.  Ronald Knox's first Miles Bredon novel, The Three Taps, is set in England and should do the trick in all respects.  Also finished Friday, May 31.
