I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
This time around, I begin on square 30. There are no trains in Diamond Fire, so I get to shake one die. Result: 5. Move on to square 35. Clean Sweep hasn't been adapted as a movie, so another shake of one die. Result: 2. Square 37, and as far as I know, Sweep in Peace hasn't won any awards, so another 1 die shake. Result: 5, moving to square 42. No characters involved in a sport or sports industry in One Fell Sweep, so another one die shake. Result: 6. Move to square 48. A book you acquired in February 2019. I can't do that either, so I'll use Kill the Queen for another shake of one die: 5.
Ending up on square 53. The cue: has something that can be used as a weapon on the cover. My copy of Snow Crash actually has a sword on the cover. I'll let that be one of my incentives to get reading on that book!
On we go, my friends.
