Big Game Read-a-thon Mini Challenge #1

For the first Big Game Read-a-thon mini challenge sponsored by Jenn's Bookshelves, we are challenged to choose which of the books we will read will win the day.

Of the three I'm reading- Pardonable Lies, the third in the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear, She-Wolves, a non-fiction look at the women who ruled England before Elizabeth by Helen Castor, and Lisa Scottoline's essay collection  My Nest Isn't Empty, It Just Has More Closet Space- it is the Maisie Dobbs novel who has gotten off to the strongest start.

Dobbs scored first, but do statistics show that the team that scores first usually wins the game? Or is it possible that Scottoline's short essay game format is a better strategy? Hmm, I'll have to have my crack team of statisticians work on that and get back to you.


  1. The Lisa Scottoline book sounds like a fun book and She Wolves looks interesting too. I haven't read any of the Maisie Dobbs books but I usually enjoy fiction more than nonfiction. Good luck with the read a thon!
