Phew. I think that's it, all I need to do now is a bit of touch up on the posts above and that's it. The Reading Blog Is Ready :smile2:

 

I'd like to add here another challenge that has to do with books but is more about trying to get motivated and finally lose all the excess weight I have.

 

In 2011 I will NOT be allowed to buy ANY books until I've lost half a kilo, meaning ~ 1 pound. Meaning, everytime I lose 0,5 kilos I'm allowed to buy one new book. So in total, I'm allowed to buy less than 100 books this year. This means no impulse shopping sprees to the charityshops and secondhand bookshops, and I also need to think very hard and careful which books I want to buy.

 

As this seems a bit harsh for me, I'm thinking maybe I'll allow 1-2 extra books each time I reach an even 10. I need the extra encouragement!

 

Also, I won't include the books that I might be receiving for free or as presents this year. I'm only talking about books that I would have to buy.

 

31.12.2010: 96,5kilos

5.1.2011: -1kg (95,5) -> 2 books to buy!! done

7.1.2011: -1kg (94,5)-> 2 books to buy! done

12.1.2011: -1kg (93,5) -> 1 books to buy! done

9.2.2011: -1kg (92,5)-> 2 books to buy! done

16.2.2011: -0,5kg (92,0)-> 1 book to buy done

23.2.2011: -1kg (91,0) -> 2 books to buy! done

2.3.2011: -1kg (90) -> 2 books to buy!

3.3.2011: -0,5kg (89,5) -> 1 book to buy!

9.3.2011: -0,5kg (89) -> 1 book to buy!

 

Total: Lost 7,5 kilos

 

Also, as I'm fighting to quit smoking, I will add another challenge to motivate me. So, for every week that I've managed to not smoke, I will be rewarded with a book purchase. I've smoked this week so the I'll have to start counting next Monday.

 

Finally some results!

14-21.3 - 1 week -> 1 book to buy!

21-28.3. - 1 week -> 1 book to buy!

WISHLIST

2011:

Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife by Mary Roach (Kylie)

Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Sex and Science by Mary Roach (Kylie)

The Library at Night by Alberto Manguel (Kylie)

The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels(Kylie + own interest)

Buried in Books by Julie Rugg (Kylie)

The Letters of Sylvia Beach by Sylvia Beach (Kylie + own interest)

 

- 84 Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff (?)

 

I would like to say how proud I am that I am responsible for adding 6 books to your 2011 wish list already. giggle.gif

 

And yes, your spelling of Helene Hanff is correct (is that why you have a question mark, or is that because you can't remember who recommended it?) I reckon you should get straight on to that one. It's a very quick read and it's absolutely lovely, as is the movie, which I just finished watching.

 

There are so many things I could comment on from your posts but I don't know where to start! As we already know, our reading interests are hugely similar, so I can't wait to see how 2011 goes for you (and, by extension, me!)

 

Lots of luck to you in 2011 Frankie! I predict your TBR pile will be going over 500. wink.gif

I've already said this once but I'll repeat it again now I'm allowed to post. :lol:

 

Best of luck with your 2011 reading and I look forward to reading your thoughts on all those wonderful books you have ready to get stuck into.

I should've put the 6 titles under the heading 2010 but it would've felt wrong, kind of. I wanted them to be on top of the list because they're all brand new recommendations :cool:

The question mark is there because I can't remember how I came to know about the book. I'm quite sure I knew about it even before joining BCF. I think. Also, you must've been confused by all my brilliant and numerous lists, because that book is still on my wishlist, as opposed to my TBR :wink: Good try, anyways!

Hehe, I had the same feeling when I was going through your TBR pile and wishlist. I wanted to make so many comments but you were still in the process of finishing your lists. Are you finished yet? I dread going to see your reading blog in case you're not, because I know I'll just want to start commenting immediately and then the posts would be in your way :blush:

 

Lots of luck to you in 2011 Frankie! I predict your TBR pile will be going over 500.

 

You can predict all you want but there's no way I'm going over 500 next year :D No way!! I'm going to be really strict about book buying next year, and I want to read ~100 books. So that should take me back to 200s.

Haha, thanks Ben! :D It took me a while to get things all sorted but now it's all good and I welcome everyone's comments :) And happy reading to the both of you for 2011 as well :friends3:

I know it's still on your wish list. :) I meant that you should get right on to buying/borrowing it straight away so you can read it. It's that good!

I'm all finished with my reading list. I might rearrange a couple of posts later, but that won't affect anything.

Oh, I see! :) I'll take your words of wisdom into consideration. I happen to know that there are a few copies at the library and I don't think they get borrowed much so there is a real possibility that I just might borrow it next week :cool:

Wow, Frankie! You sure do have a busy 2011 ahead! Good luck with all your goals :)
