Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round
Help me, get my feet back on the ground
Won't you please, please help me
This was an interesting read about the Danes invading Wessex just before Alfred became king.
I have no idea how accurate it is, but I enjoyed it.
186 pgs toward my release from jail.
(Write me a letter send it by mail
Send it in care of the Birmingham jail)
That's going to be running through my head forever.
(Go directly to jail, do not pass Go, do not collect $200)
I wish my elder son were home - I want to play Monopoly now.
Rolled 2, double 1's, and landed here:
Which sent me here:
Question: Is the requirement 500, 300, or 100 pages.
I have seen all 3 numbers in relation to being In Jail.
**Thanks to Char and BrokenTune, editing to add the title of the story:
This was a surprising little "sleeper".
A nice little haunting/something's lurking/stalking type story.
Only about 10 pages, concise, no extra flowery stuff.
However, it gave me nightmares last night.
Intense enough for me to wake myself up telling hubby 'No! Get away!' as I replayed an entire scene in my dream.
And loud enough that he came in to make sure I was awake and okay.
I wasn't even going to write anything about it since it was just a short story I found in my TBR that matched the author birthday challenge I'm doing in a group on Goodreads.
I will be looking for more of Mr. Bierce's writings.
This picked up nicely at about 60%.
I'm glad I stuck with it.
The Company who controls space expansion overreaches and the citizens fight back.
Some of the characters I was ecstatic when they bit the dust.
I especially enjoyed some of the captains getting an ass whuppin'.
And just when you think one of them has to be the biggest bitch ever, you find out she has a little bit of a conscience buried in there somewhere.
He's lying! He's lying! He's lying!
(said in my best Cheech Marin voice of Tito from Oliver &Company)
I almost DNF'd this one at about 25%.
But I NEED to know what happens to the Downers.
I know she's a good SciFi writer, because swear I read something else of hers which I now cannot locate.
But, holy hell, this has got to be the most boring space war ever.
Slow motion war.
"...titanic battle of colony worlds fighting for independence."
I don't recall how long it took the Titanic to sink, but it must have been more exciting than this.
I really enjoyed this series.
Urban Fantasy(?) before it was a thing I suppose.
Diana Tregard is the most realistic witch I have read about.
This was a convoluted way to get a book read, so, I hope I did it right. LOL
I landed on BL, so rolled for my task, which was task 6. It's your lucky day! Read any book for your next turn regardless of the task instructions!
So I rolled AGAIN after the 2 day wait.
Who can resist a vampire poodle that's not really a poodle trying to save Topeka, KS from invading human vampires with the help of a down and out reporter.
This was highly entertaining, but I don't think I would classify it as a mystery of any sort.
More of a paranormal adventure.
Unless trying to figure out the Count is the mystery.
