Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

24 Festive Tasks: Festivus, Tasks #2-4

Task #4: Google the word “Festivus” and take a screenshot.

Task #2:  Take a picture of your Festivus Pole (and remember this is a family site).

Task 3: Have your household scales perform a feat of strength: Place 10 of your heaviest books in a stack on your scales and tell us what their total weight comes to.


We don't have a bathroom scale, because that way lies madness, so I had to do this with my kitchen scales, which max out at 15kg.  MT really got into the spirit of this task, helping me out by quickly zeroing in on the heaviest books I own, and bringing them to the scales.  He was so enthusiastic, we ended up weighing my 11 heaviest (2 were in a box set).
