Snakes & Ladders update

Snow Crash - Neal Stephenson DreadfulWater Shows Up - Hartley GoodWeather

 

So, I was on square 53.  The prompt: Has something that can be used as a weapon on the cover.

 

I was reading a copy of Snow Crash which has a stylized Samurai sword on the cover:

 

 

Hiro Protagonist is an expert swordsman.  So, this enables me to shake 2 dice this time around.  The result:  4 + 2 = 6, taking me to square 59.  The next prompt:  Was published more than 10 years ago.  DreadfulWater Shows Up qualifies!!  Yay!  So, another shake of two dice.  Result: 3 + 6 = 9, Taking me to square 68 and a Ladder. In order the use the ladder, I must read a book that has something related to weddings on the cover.

None of my current books fulfill that prompt, so I'll be back to the slower method of progressing.  Ah well!

 

I'm just happy to be on square 68.
