  2. Watched a movie, thought about books to read. That is a start at least.

  3. is it cheating to start with a picture book that is essentially 26 pages? it is quite the delectable appetizer.

  23. Wow no.114 I'm so impressed that there are so many reviews up already. I actually started reading Above Ground: The Affected Parade by A M Harte just before the challenge began. Then when I finished I thought it would be perfect for this. Please go check it out because it is a new piece of writing and can use all the support.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    Its called "Dante's Journey" and it is a modern interpretation of "Dante's Inferno".

    ReplyDelete

  80. Passed The Peril the First some time ago, but have only just posted my fourth R.I.P. review, so only now do I feel that I have succeeded in this challenge.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Got at least one movie for the Peril on the Screen portion of the challenge! I guess I've sort of completed the whole thing. Super great time!

    ReplyDelete
  82. We have 3 reviews just posted:
    One translated crime thriller - The Devil's Star by Jo Nesbo, another court room thriller - Buying Time, and Dracula in audio.

    The last post contains some pictures we took in Whitby, England - a year or so ago where a portion of the story of Dracula is set.

    Very pretty and Gothic. The Abbey is amazing!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  86. I'm extremely slow but I did finish ONE book for the challenge! I may need to downgrade my challenge level from Peril the Second to Peril the Third, if that is permissible...

    ReplyDelete
