I was coming up dry, so I posed the Bookish Party Mini Challenge to my family at dinner.
My husband's idea was a Moby Dick Themed Party:
We would serve hardtack & bloody steaks
We would drink grog
We would play darts (with harpoons) and pin the harpoon on the whale
The guests would go home with a plushy white whale
My younger son's idea was a Hobbit Party
We would serve midnight bacon and tomatoes
We would drink beer
We would play riddle games
The guests would go home with a precious ring
Thanks for a wonderful topic of conversation for a bookish family.
