For this task, I was allowed to pick a book of my choice, so I picked one that had been lingering on my virtual tbr shelf for ages:
Flappers by Judith Mackrell.
I have this as an audiobook, but according to Ammy, the print version has 512 pages, yielding a potential reward of $5.
As for reading in the "wild" for an hour (wild being defined as a location other than my living room), I had hoped to take the audiobook with me on a jog down the beach. However, the temperatures dropped by 10C yesterday and we had another relapse into snow, sleet, and icy rain, so I put the jog on hold. Instead, I started listening to the book on the way to and from work this week.
