  2. Player Choice, by Jeff Deck = 25 pages

PAGES READ ON DAY 2 = only 29.

I’m ending up reading less during Bout of Books Week! The culprit yesterday was the movie Mr. Turner which I had checked out at the library and had to watch before returning. If you are an artist and/or like biographies and fantastic acting, this is for you!
A real portrait of a complex character, not a simplification à la Hollywood, as some other recent successful movies. They worked so hard to make that movie, real ART. I highly recommend you watch the documentary part going with the DVD, explaining how they did the movie.

PAGES READ SO FAR= 81 only

I didn’t do any challenge yesterday

  2. I did the Bookish Survey
  3. I posted a book contest – remember, the 1st to guess the 2 correct answers wins the 5 books! Seriously, use the clues and the search button on my blog, and you will find them quickly!
