  1. The Last Film You Saw - 2016

    The first two films I've seen in 2016 have been 'The Sound of Music' (it wouldn't be New Year's day with it it!) and 'Wreck-it-Ralph' (I fell asleep during this!)

    That's good going already Noll! I'll probably finish my first read of 2016 tomorrow.

    Thanks for posting the dates for this year's read-a-thons! I've read 60 pages of 'The Truth' by Terry Pratchett's on day one of this weekend's read-a-thon. Happy reading everyone!

  8. Strictly Come Dancing

    Yes! At last someone who agrees with me! I think they should stop faffing about and show the actual training. Overall, I do think the majority of the celebs this year, are very good even after show 1. Carol and Daniel are not as good, but they are trying bless them.
  9. Halloween Read-a-thon?

    Well it would make more sense to have it during the Halloween weekend. I'm probably not going to be around much at that point, as my friends are staying for a couple of weeks. However, I will try and join in, I'll definitely be reading some scary novels in October
  10. Halloween Read-a-thon?

    By any chance could we do the 16-18? It's really early for Halloween though.
  11. Halloween Read-a-thon?

    I'm definitely interested, but at the end of October I wouldn't be able to, as my friend is visiting. So it depends on when it would be. Reading scary books sounds like a great idea!
  12. Adverts you like/dislike?

    I love the advert for John Lewis Home Insurance, with the little girl in glasses dancing to 'Tiny Dancer' by Elton John.
  13. Looking for some old faces as well as new :)

    It's slightly late but
  14. Great British Bake Off (Includes Spoilers)

    I love BBBO too, but instead of inspiring me to bake, it just makes me hungry
  15. Ooh! It's a tough choice between the two already suggested, but I think I'd go with The Shop Around The Corner too
  16. Read-a-thon - (2013-2015)

    I'm enjoying it, but probably not as much as the first time I read this. Oh, and I'm skipping all of the songs
  17. Noll's 2015 Book Blog

    Wow that's incredible! Congratulations
  18. Read-a-thon - (2013-2015)

    Hi! Here's how I got on this read-a-thon: Friday: 'The Hobbit' (28 Pages) Saturday: 'The Hobbit' (13 Pages) Sunday 'The Hobbit' (16 Pages) Total Page Read: 57 Pages I tried to add up using my Kindle, so I don't think the total is quite right. It felt like I read way more than 57 pages
  19. Read-a-thon - (2013-2015)

    I hope you feel better! At least reading a book will keep your mind off of your cold. I've done about 2 hours of reading today. I'm hoping to really get stuck in tomorrow.
  20. BookTube-A-Thon August 3rd - August 9th 2015

    Thanks for the info both of you! I'll spend next week reading 7 books. It's a shame the ones I read before won't count
  21. BookTube-A-Thon August 3rd - August 9th 2015

    I might try next week. Then there will be another read-a-thon soon too though, won't there?
  22. BookTube-A-Thon August 3rd - August 9th 2015

    I managed one book and then started reading another, but I didn't like it. Now we have visitors so no chance of reading that much! I might try the 7 books in a week again sometime
  23. BookTube-A-Thon August 3rd - August 9th 2015

    Good Luck too! I've failed miserably
  24. BookTube-A-Thon August 3rd - August 9th 2015

    Now I'm starting 'The Reading Group' by Elizabeth Noble. It will count toward the 7 books in a week challenge
