2016scifiexp250Once again, for good reasons, I’ve missed the first month of the Sci-fi experience (which runs from 1 December to 31 January) but I am going to make a point of reading and watching sci-fi in the time left.

Although, now that I think of it, I will be starting in December because the next book I’m planning to read on my Kindle app is The Three Body Problem, and I think I can get away with describing the new Star Wars movie as science fiction 🙂

But other than those I’m not making any reading lists except to say that what I will read will be stuff I already own at midnight on 31 December in line with challenges I’m taking part in in parallel (and which have sign-up posts of their own!)

May even get around to Flowers for Algernon like I said I was going to last time *cough*

tbr-final-dareAs is traditional at this time of year I have decided to sign up for what is almost certainly the last TBR Double Dog Dare. For those new to the concept, start reading here:

The TBR Triple Dog Dare works like this….

For the first three months of 2016 read only the books that were already in your TBR stack as of midnight December 31, 2015.

You can modify this any way you like, but I’m going to be a bit purist and stick to the principle as described, but with the added burden of buying no new books in the same three month period. It worked really well for me when I tried it out this year, although I will admit there was a bit of a spending spree on 1 April.

I’m running this alongside the Clean Your Reader Challenge, and so for TBR it will only be physical books that I’ll count towards my goal. I’m also not making any projected lists because, hey, where would I start?


Last year I said that if nothing else I would finally read Blonde by Joyce Carol Oates. I didn’t. Will this be the year….

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
