  1. I absolutely adore Good Omens. It's pretty much my favourite book. Neil Gaiman has said repeatedly that their only goal when writing that was to make each other laugh.
  2. Yeeeees I did the same thing last year. Those books are so good. I want to get the Stephen Fry Heroes book. Greek heroes this time round. Also there is a youtube clip somewhere of Stephen Fry and Neil Gaiman talking about the books and reading bits of them out while an illustrator live-draws bits of the conversation.
  3. OH MY GOSH THIS IS SO EXCITING!!!! *huge crashtacklehugs for Blank* I do have you in fb and still didn't see it!! Congratulations!! And good on him for nailing that delivery haha.
  4. Mm, I am thinking I might go the route of read at back, to-be read at front, to-be read that I borrowed from someone else very at the front, planning to read this year in a stack. Also that stack is going to have to include things I am willing to lose once I've read them. I reeeeally need another bookshelf.
  5. So pretty! I can never commit to a bullet journal but I love that unread bookshelf idea. I have so many haha.
  6. Yeah, I run at either end, either very explicit (10k a month) or very abstract. That way I don't get down on myself or put too much happy fuel into achieving particular things, but instead have directions I can go in that I know will make me happier and braver.
  7. So I'm about to move all my books around and see if I can de-clutter and re-organise. When I moved in here they all got put on shelves very haphazardly and one bookshelf is double layered with horizontals on top so more space and digging out the stuff that has been at the back for a year is the goal! How do you guys like to organise your books? Are you alphabet or genre or to-be read or...?
  8. I have only recently gotten into audiobooks and love listening to them while doing puzzles!
  9. Hmm, interesting. Wisdom to me is related to the use of common sense much in the same way as intelligence. Not letting too much intelligence getting in the way of common sense and vice versa. So in a strange kind if way, wisdom feels like moderation, temperance.
  10. My brother and his wife are having their second baby in March too!! A little boy, Finn Ritesh 🙂 Ooh, thaf sounds fun Cross!
  11. I tend to half-do resolutions. I am planning on doing 10k words a month of writing, and also more generic sort of goals - choose joy, do good recklessly, make things and finish them. I find that general goals like that work for me as things I've decided to improve on make it easier to make the right decisions in impulsive or crisis moments.
  12. I love that tracker thing!!! I am rubbish at keeping track. I use here to do it haha
  13. That's so interesting Basel! I don't like the female narrator nearly as much as the male.
  14. I well exceeded my goal last year and I like those book challenges aaand I'm trying to read all the unread stuff on my bookshelves so I can decide if I can get rid of some of it before I move.
