Booklikes-opoly Wrap Up!

I have a cold so excuse me if this whole post wanders.


First, thanks to Moonlight Reader for being my bingo partner and overall a great friend. She thinks up the best games :-) We will plan something again for the Fall or Winter I am sure. However, don't forget that you can post suggestions in the discussion thread, or even suggest a book that you want our group to read in the next few months. 

 

Second, thanks to all of you for participating and making this fun. Thanks for all of the questions you posed. And I hope that you all enjoyed yourselves. A game like this really is about for me at least finding out about other books out there in order to stretch myself. Also, it allows me to happily warn people away from books (do not read Fifty Shades of Grey) at the same time. Everyone was great about providing suggestions for cards that we landed on. And I honestly wish I had been sent to jail at least once. I kept missing it!

 

My final balance for the game was $189. 

 

According to my Goodreads shelf I ended up reading 27 books for the game. My favorites ended up being "The Changeling" and "And Then There Were None". I read a lot of stinkers when I first started though which was unfortunate. Luckily most of my reads ended up falling in the 4 star range.
