Welcome to the Reading List, it says..
I once had a reading list; waste of time it was. Still haven't managed to complete a whole book since me teens, but I have waded half way through a fair few good ones though.
At the moment I'm having a bash at Eats, Shoots and Leaves. Very funny; leaves you being a stickler for punctuation. I sitll haven't quite got my head around the semicolon, but i'm throwing it in here and there with me eyes shut, and am hoping that they're placed in the appropriate position...
Other books on my reading list are:
Oliver Twist (Read the first 2 pages)
The Way We Wore ( half way through it)
The Picture Of Dorian Gray (Read the first 3 chapters )
Dear Boy (2 chapters in )
A Kestral For A Knave (Have read it 3 times over and every time only reach the half way point)
Shout (Half a page)
Peter Cook; A Biography (About 4 chapters)
and The History Of Fashion. (Briefly flicked through)
Well, i'll make it my aim to have finished one of the above by January. That gives me 4 months, yeah, that's doable!
On a good note, since writing this reading list (which was about a month ago) I've managed to finish reading the semicolon section in Eats, Shoots and Leaves, and I can say with confidence, I kinda know when to use it now..sort of!
