Perhaps my brain has become as addled as Don Quixote’s but I thought DQ would make a great book for a reading game. Nota bene: I do not drink alcohol because ethanol damages the brain and my brain is addled enough. I recommend playing this game with something that won’t impair your reading abilities, such as potato chips, chocolate, or Manchego cheese; suggestions are welcome!


Take a bite/sip every time:

  • Don Quixote imitates a knight from a book
  • Rocinante is mentioned
  • Don Quixote sees things that aren’t really there
  • someone gets hurt
  • Don Quixote calls on Dulcinea for aid

After a few chapters I guarantee you will be feeling as happy as Sancho Panza after emptying his saddlebags.
