I'm a man with a mission in two or three editions...

I love books me.

So when the Ultimate Olympian sent me a link to this with the words "Saw this, thought of you", what the hell else was I supposed to do?

[I'm dumping this flash nonsense. You can see my shelf here]

I think I'm going to use this little baby to try and keep a list of the books on my "To Be Read" (TBR) pile. Not just books that I abstractly want to read, but books that are actually sat in a pile next to my bed waiting for me to pick them up and read them. That kind of a TBR pile.

Well, the ones nearest to the top anyway.

If I can work out how to do it, I'll embed it in my sidebar too. That way you too can see how long that Henry James stays there unread as I plough my way through sport books....

Won't that be fun?

Go on.

Sign up.

You know you want to.

(and where can I get one of these for records?)


and for reference, of the books listed above, I am actively reading:

-> the biography of Keith Miller
-> "The Master" (no, it's not a Doctor Who novel...)
-> That book on the Tour de France.)

Although I did have a brief diversion on Monday when I read "Elektra: Assassin". That's literature too, right?


  1. Love it! I'll have to take time to do this next time I am bored at work!

  2. Why are you the Kevin Bacon?

    Do you come with sausages and eggs?

  3. There's an application on Facebooks that has books, CDs, DVDs, gadgets, and magazines. Both that you have and that you want to have/read/listen to/watch. It's quite dangerous to my productivity at work! :)
