Thanks Blip, it took a bit more dedication than I had anticipated especially since becoming a grandfather last year. I'd rather play with my grandaughter than read a book and next year my daughter is expecting twins so the 50 target is a definite nono. Might well be looking at the 25 target though and not doing anything silly like doing Michael Connelly rereads just to get the number up. In theory I should be able to read two more books before the end of the year making it a nice 1 a week total but I don't think it will happen as I've promised to do some jobs in the house before the new year so I'm not going to stress myself.

Merry Xmas everyone. :cheers:

I know, I'm so close! :(

I'm in the middle of one and have another one lined up. I'm trying really hard. I had some movies I had to watch before they expired, so now that's out of the way and I've been reading like crazy!

Well done, Nameless!
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!
