A lover of books. After a faff around Tumblr, not really understanding it properly, this will become a purely bookish blog. I like other things too.
Attempting to read 50 books in 2011.
It took me a while and now I’m slightly behind in my 50 book challenge but I’ve finished In Cold Blood by Truman Capote.
Since the last post I finished reading Less Than Zero and its 2010 sequel, Imperial Bedrooms. Both are classic Bret Easton Ellis; funny, contemporary and more than a bit dark!
I finished The End of the Affair by Graham Greene. What a wonderful read it was, I really hope I can get more Greene to read, I can’t believe I haven’t read any before.
I’m about halfway through Less Than Zero by Bret Easton Ellis. I recently bought his new book, Imperial Bedrooms, before realising it’s a sequel to Less Than Zero so downloaded it on my kindle. I love BEE, American Psycho might be my all time favourite book. But I change my mind on that matter every day.
I’m having my own affair with Greene. My 3rd book in about as many days.
I’ve gotten off to a flying start with my challenge, having read The Quiet American by Graham Greene in a day. I couldn’t help it. I have a week off and once I started it, I was enjoying it so much to stop!
I’ve gone through phases of enjoying and not enjoying this. Currently enjoying. Found it helped reading a bit of background and contextual info.
This is also book 1 of my 50 Book Challenge! Wish me luck!
