What do a good guitar solo, a pint in the local, a photo of a grinning dog, a bit of satire and a tortoise named Alan all have in common? They all amuse me, that’s right amuse me, right now that’s been cleared up……..
I’ve been putting a lot of effort into my posts recently, which I’m sure you’ll agree is nice. Not that I was exactly showboating before, but the all consuming life a blogger is a serious business these days for me. So much in fact that it is interfering with my reading, I have yet to complete my 72nd book of the year despite having started it ages ago (Frankenstein if you are wondering).
Now with an imminent week off and a distinct lack of any sort of plans to go with it, this will be the ideal time to continue in my quest to read 100 books this year. It’s a bit of an arbitrary number you may think, and you would be right to do so. But it does have a ring to it. There are no hidden symbols in it, I could make some up but that would be like The da Vinci Code and no one needs to hear me rant on about that again (although continuous digs at it, it seems are fine).
So rather than bore you with updates on how much I am reading and how I’m getting on, blah, blah and thrice blah, feel free to check back to my Books read in 2012 page which is a lot less wordy than me. I have been wondering if I should count graphic novels/comic books as there are some pretty decent literary stuff I wouldn’t mind reading and sharing with you all, but I don’t want to break any unwritten rules. Anyways your thoughts welcome as always, and may I say you look lovely today.
