I was on spot 20, so this puts me on spot 25, the Summer Blockbuster.


Read a book (or a book in a series) that has been adapted for film or television.


This game seems bound and determined not to let me read any of my Murderbot haul.


On the plus side, I have a lot of options for this one. A lot of the Japanese light novels I own have been turned into TV series, so it's just a matter of deciding which one I'm in the mood to read. Right now I'm thinking maybe The Saga of Tanya the Evil or The Rising of the Shield Hero. Or forcing myself to continue Log Horizon - the anime adaptation is good, but my experience with the first book was less than stellar. Rereading one of the Twelve Kingdoms books for the comfort factor is also really tempting right now. It's been a rough past few weeks, and I really, really hope that my doctor tells me something useful when I go in for my follow-up in a little over a week. My right elbow hasn't improved at all in the past month.
