TLC *NEW* Don't Get Fined! A Library Adventure

The Lost Challenges discussion on goodreads


description
You will need one six-sided dice to play.

Your library book is due back today but it’s early closing at the library and it’s right on the other side of town!

Move around the town by rolling the dice and completing the reading tasks for each space you land on – but beware, along the way there will be distractions from your mission. Get your book back to the library on time and don’t get fined! 

Duration: Open Ended

RULES

Start on the 'Start Here' space, roll your dice and move to a numbered space.

You must complete the task for that space BEFORE rolling again. 

If you land on a “GO BACK” space and get sent back to a task you have already done you must do that task again using a different book. 

*FORFEITS: Some spaces will give you an option of going back OR doing a forfeit. If you choose the forfeit, stay on the space you are on and roll the dice once. The number you roll is the number of the forfeit you must do. Read a book to complete your forfeit task before rolling again and continuing the game. The 6 forfeit categories are listed in msg #3

If you land on a space that requires you to “GO HOME” you must return to the beginning and start over. 

You do not need to land on 'The Library' by exact number to finish. (i.e if you are on 98 and roll a 5, you are done, you don't need to back track)

After each move, as well as updating your original post, please post a new message with the following information.

Roll # (i.e first roll, second roll, third roll etc)
Start Space
Number Rolled

A link to the book you read for the task, the date you finished it, the cover if the task relates to it and a brief explanation of how the book fits the task.
