Scrabble Book Lovers Edition

So it's not a book but it is book related! I love Scrabble and this sounds like a fun twist on the original. You can play by the original rules or you can play the book lover version where you get extra points for building character, author, and book title names. I can't wait to play- but first I have to find some willing players...


  1. OMG! Scrabble Book Lovers is brilliant! I had no idea they even made that version. Very cool! I can't wait to hear what you think of Pandemonium. I also really liked The Book Thief- I hope you enjoy that one, too! Happy Reading!

  2. PANDEMONIUM!!!! *eyes dart around suspiciously*

    Oh my god, what is your problem? How dare you accuse me of plotting to lure you in with a game of Scrabble and the betray your trust when whoops, Professor Brodie knocked Christina unconscious with a candlestick in the billard room and then stole this bad boy novel. (wait... I think we're playing cluedo now).

    So, um, I'm super jealous of Pandemonium :P AWESOME books this week! I'm also reallly interested in Miss Peregrine's too. Enjoy!

  3. Scrabble for Book Lovers? TOOOO COOL! I must learn more. Will you do us a favor and review it after you've played?

  4. Can't wait to see what you think of Pandemonium! I still need to read Delirium. I'm hoping to get to it soon. :) I hope you enjoy all your new reads!

  5. @ Christina-They also have one for people who love to garden and people who love to cook. Pandemonium is really good so far.

    @ Brodie-LOL, I haven't played Clue in ages! Great game :)

    @ Juju-I'd love to review it. I am planning to try it out with my family at Thanksgiving while the guys watch the Packers game :)

  6. Oh I've heard wonderful reviews on the Book Thief I'm really curious about that one as well.
