Chess Challenge

I'm on chess.com as CharlieJohnson. Challenge me to a game. If you win, I'll read a good book of your choice (English only, haven't read it before, and I may ask for another choice if it's over 500 pages). It doesn't have to be theology, but it certainly can be.

I'm not especially good at chess, but enjoy playing it anyway from time to time... especially against similarly mediocre players.
If I loose, do I have to read a book of your choice?

That's pretty good. It's not championship good, but it's good. In high school, I beat some 1600 players and lost to more of them.

Charlie, where do you find the time?

I play only correspondence, not live. Players have a few days to make moves. Also, I will be unemployed for the month of July in between jobs. Wink

If you get really bored, I'm pretty sure I could find some stuff for you to do!

Charlie and I just started our match on chess.com. He has a much higher rating though.
