50 Book Challenge - no; 25 Book Challenge - Maybe.... plus Angus the Video Star....

There is a community a number of my friends are on called 50bookchallenge. The community target is to try and read 50 books in a year. Now I like that idea but for various reasons (mainly that I am actually a slow reader and also hardly ever have any time to read apart from last thing at night before I sleep...) I will never be able to read 50 books in tweleve months. Not unless I drop a lot of other activities and plans which I'm not about to do.

I still like the 'aim' though so I'm setting myself a 25 book challenge. That's two books a month plus another one snuck in somewhere. It'll still be tough but that's my aim. I've actually kicked the year off fairly well as I'm already on my fourth book.

So far we've had 'Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell' by Susanna Clark, 'Memoirs of a Geisha' by Arthur Golden and 'Pollen' by Jeff Noon. As already mentioned in a previous post I'm currently reading 'High Fidelity' by Nick Hornby, and should actually finish it by the end of the weekend I reckon.


In other news my New Model Army Live DVD (from the Astoria gig in December 2003) arrived this morning. I've only skimmed through it so far but I can confirm that several of you were indeed correct - I do seem to be in quite a bit :p
