Reading Challenge – April Update

19 books read so far, and now 10 books ahead of schedule in 17 weeks. Happy about the result so far. April’s books were… This book is not for the faint hearted at all. I found the whole thing quite disturbing that human beings can be so cruel. Do not get me wrong, it was…

Reading Challenge – Feb

As you will know, and if you don’t, take yourself off to a darkened room and a laptop and read my blog, god-damn-it. Only kidding! I set myself a challenge of 30 books to read this year, so far I have managed 6 and I am part way through far too many to mention, but…

Expanding Library

In the words of Jim Carey, “Somebody Stop Me”. I bought more books. I cannot help it, it is like an addiction. Anyway, this is what I bought today. English: A Story of Marmite, Queueing and Weather – Ben Fogle Up: My Life Journey to the Top of Everest – Ben Fogle Blood for Blood…

Reading Challenge

So, in Goodreads, I pledged to read 30 books this year. I was thinking of only doing 20 as I have some really big books to read this year. I also have about 600 books that I still have not read sitting on bookcases about the house. We have bookcases near every room, and in…

Catch up Sunday…

Sundays have always been a bit of a catchup day for me, but lately, I have not got round to catching up with anything, especially blogs and emails.  I have over 2000 emails to go through and I am sure thousands of posts that you lot have been writing over the last few months. So,…

I’m Back…

Busy, yes, I think that sums up the past 3 weeks.  In fact, I could go one further and say bedlam, mmm, yes, I will stick with bedlam. Obviously, the pup has been keeping us on our toes, but we have had so many appointments to fit in including puppy days at the vets, Mazikeen…

Book challenge….

I set myself a challenge to read 4 books by the end of the month, 2 down and 2 to go, and a little behind, but life is like that. The latest completed book was Paul O’Grady “Open the Cage, Murphy”. This is the 4th of his biographies and is set in the rise of…

Books galore..

I have quite literally thousands of books, and this is no exaggeration.  I have been collecting books all my adult life.  I have bought books that I have never read, and may never get to read, but I am determined to try. Inspired by another blogger Chronical Of Ellen, I have decided to list some books…
