For my third roll, I had gotten a 5 and moved from New Orleans Square Station to Jail Visitor Square. I chose to read from False Memory by Dean Koontz for my page donations, starting from page 343 and wrapping up at page 557, totally 214 pages read; with this I donate 200 pages to the Jail Library. I know I only need to donate 100 pages, but since I read 200+ pages, that's what I'm going to donate.
This book... is still rolling on slowly...
In fact, I was worried that I wouldn't even be able to finish 100 pages before the next day I am allowed to roll. And then, when I DID finish about 100 pages, I realized that my Sunday was going to be kind of busy and wasn't sure if I'd even have time to sit down, roll, post and update, and choose a new book for the next roll.
With the updated/modified rules taking effect now, I had decided that I would just wait until tomorrow, Monday, 4/24, to roll again.
But, YAY!, I was able to squeeze in some time today!
(Edit 4/26/2017: Due to the haste at which I wrote and published this post, I went back and discovered a multitude of typos, so there was a full edit of this entire post.)
Here is my fourth roll:
I rolled a 6, and from the Jail Visitor square, moved to Adventureland 24.
Here is my live game board:
This is a great spot, because I think I might have a few books that will fit. One in particular that is pretty short, which is perfect, since I rolled a double and will have to roll again.
Here is Roll #4.2:
I followed up my double roll with yet another double and now I'm getting nervous, because my luck is crap. With a 12 I will move from Adventureland 24 to Mystery Square 35. Once again, another ideal roll since I'm all about books with police detective investigations and whatnot. I should be able to go through my TBR and find something workable.
Magnetic Monkey gets too overly excited sometimes, but that's okay. I'm a bit excited, too! A mystery is just what I need! =D
And now, Roll #4.3: (I couldn't possibly be so unlucky...?)
At least Magnetic Monkey has the grace to look a bit abashed for my sake:
I should have quit while I was ahead, and: Hey!! Now I'm in the same spot, but waving back out to my former spot!
See, I knew I'd end up in Jail at some point in this game.
I guess I'll be here for a while. I'll need to clarify some things in the Q&A before I move on, but I think the rules had been that I could read books for all the squares I land on, but I don't have to? And since I'm in Jail now, I also need to serve a sentence of 300 pages. I suppose this will give me a chance to finish reading False Memory by Dean Koontz, though I only have a little less than 200 pages left of that book... of course, I DID just donate 200 pages to the prison library...
So I could just read 100 pages from my book and use the other 200 pages I donated to spring myself?
Oh, do I need to do all of this in order though? Read a book for the first square I landed on (Adventureland 24), then the second square (Mystery Square 35), then serve my 300 page sentence?
I think I might just pick one other book for one of the squares I landed on... though... I haven't quite decided yet, so I'll probably post another update with my decisions later.
