Only one movie this month, but what a corker – District 9

Plus my new favourite TV thing – Warehouse 13

FIR09MediumSo I know I’ve had lots of problems with challenges this year (only completed one so far) but I enjoyed participating in this one last year and thought I’d have another go.

And that was as far as I got in writing this post on 26 September which seems ages ago; my only excuse for having put this aside being the last minute, signficant flurry of work before my annual holiday, which started technically as soon as I left work on Friday but starts properly tomorrow when we head north.

So, aims for Fall into Reading this year are:

  • read the six books I’m taking on holiday with me
  • read Blonde by Joyce Carol Oates which I identified as something I wanted to do way back at the beginning of 2009 (and where has the year gone, I ask you?)
  • finish the 42 Challenge on time
  • finish Carl’s RIP IV challenge on time
  • restart the Reading Muriel Spark project which I’ve singularly failed to progress since I started two years ago…

That seems quite a lot to be getting on with; let’s wait and see how I do…..

Scottish, in my fifties, love books but not always able to find the time to read them as much as I would like. I’m based in London and happily married to the Book God.

I also blog at Bride of the Screen God (all about movies and TV) and The Dowager Bride, if you are interested in ramblings about stuff of little consequence
