Portable Magic

Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

HP's BL-opoly - 1st Dice Roll

I'm really looking forward to this game, and I love that it's designed to let me further my goal this year of reducing my TBR mountain. I have a challenge going over on GR in the Horror Aficionados group, and so far I've knocked out 13 from my goal of 40 books.

So for my first dice roll:


I had a lot of choices for this one, since fantasy is one of my favorite genres, but this children's fairy tale book has been on my shelf for a couple of years, since I picked it up at a used bookstore on a whim after seeing the illustrations. I probably won't get to it today, since I'm still trying to finish my taxes, but I can finish it tomorrow, in time for the next dice day on 4/19.
