The Safety Dance, Time After Time, Etc.

Have you read Ready Player One yet? If you haven’t yet, you should! For everyone finished with the book, did you catch yourself humming those 80’s hits or wanting to rewatch any sweet 80’s flicks? Immerse yourself in the OASIS easter egg hunt with the help of your trusty library!

Here are lists of the Movies, Music, Anime, TV Shows, and Books referenced by Parzival and his friends.


Yay! Go RPO! :)

And for the really serious, enter the embedded Easter Egg Hunt hidden IN THE BOOK:

Though you should know that this contest was announced a couple of months ago. On the other hand, I now know what the final challenge is, and it may take someone a while to achieve it, as it is really, really tough.

I'll be sure to read those lists! GO RPO (and Treasure Quest)!
I found the hidden URL, but I don't think I'll try completing the gate. Too hard for a video game challenged person like me. :P

@Cherylo I made it to the third gate, but I'm fairly certain I don't have the skills to complete it. This book is getting more and more popular.

@Morgsush - I so understand what you mean by "video game challenged". I'm absolutely horrible at them if they require any hand-eye coordination whatsoever! I haven't found the URL in the book yet, but I haven't had a lot of time to try since I got my own copy of the book. Still, I have a feeling I won't be doing too many of the challenges since I'm so horrible at video games!

On a different note, so awesome that someone created lists of all the various movies, music, etc. :) Thanks for that!

After reading the book, I made my teen sons watch Wargames with me. They liked it, although they disparaged the computer technology. Thanks for the movie list to remind me what other 80s classics to share with them.
