A bookish spin on a classic game. My daughter and I are both avid readers and we have a great time with this!

Tell me, who needs properties when you can have books? Houses and hotels when you can have bookstores and libraries? Is there really any comparison? Except that maybe, the more money you have, the more books you get and time to read them!

When I first saw this game,I wanted to know more details than the box provided, so I'd like to share some details with you other inquisitive's who are wondering whether or not to purchase this:

The tokens are icons from various books. ie: A carousel horse from The Catcher in the Rye, a whale from Moby Dick, a fly from Lord of the Flies, a ship, glasses and a book worm.

The four railroads are Genres
The electric co. and water works are Imagination and Big Brain
The community chest and chance are Knowledge and Explore
Pass 'Read' to collect your $[...]
Go to jail by Watching TV
Just Visiting is Excercise your mind
Free Parking is Free Dreams
Taxes are Book club Fee

When I play this, I am reminded of the many classics that I haven't read, and am inspired to read them! This is a fun version of monopoly. Great gift for a booklover!

We love to read and what better than a game about books. This game includes so many of the old classics. My whole family gets involved when we pull it out. It was a great purchase, I highly recommend this game to all families.

We gave 'Book-opoly' - A Monopoly Game For Book Lovers along with a book entitled 'From The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler' to our fourteen year old granddaughter, an avid reader. She commented that she had read almost all of the books listed on the board. Book-opoly is great gift for any book-lover to receive. The game is educational and great fun to play. ~ Mrs. B.

An excellent learning tool, that ads fun to reading! It is a good conversation game. My kids and i talked about the books that are listed.

The only negative I found is after a few plays everyone knows the answers to the questions,. You could always make up your own cards.

We used this game as a prize for our summer reading program. We issued library "book bucks" and the kids used them to bid on the prizes. Bookopoly was one of the most popular prizes that "sold" to the highest bidder.
