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 - 6th Round

I've just finished my 4th round pick (audio), and am still working on my 5th round pick (paperback). Since game rules allow us to do audio concurrently with text format books, I'm starting my 6th round on audio while I finish reading Shane: The Critical Edition - Jack Schaefer

 

Also, just a note of thanks to Ani, who gifted me with $5, as she took pity on my slow reading and tiny bank balance.

The Fold - Peter Clines,Ray Porter 

 

I chose The Fold because it was shelved as "mystery" by 124 users at GR, so it appears in the first page of shelves. Also, I bought the audio almost a year ago. Not sure if I'm going to like it. I skimmed the reviews and this seems to be a love it or hate it kind of read. We shall see.
