New Years Resolution Being Inacted.

I don't usually believe in New Years resolutions but this year I've decided to enact one anyway, this year I've decided to read more...

I used to read loads but in the past 10 or so years I've fallen off the path, I barely read 4-5 books a year if I'm lucky, I'd love to do one of those challenges where you read 52 books over the course of a year, but I know myself and I know that's not realistic So my goal for the end of the year is to have finished 25 books, that's one for every 2 weeks with 2 weeks slack time in case I get really busy.

I say finished because I'm going to kind of cheat, I'm notorious for picking up a book reading the first couple of chapters and then forgetting about it, so I'm going to work through those books first.

The Good news is I'm already ahead I started and finished reading a book this week.

So to start the list off:

1. Audition By Ryu Murakami translated by Ralph McCarthy. (Completed 07/01/2009)
I'd heard of the Film by Takeshi Miike and one of my friends described it as the most disturbing film he'd ever seen. The book is apparently by comparison rather tame, though I enjoyed it. And now I want to see the film.

Onto my next book which I think is going to be A Man With No Talents By Ooyama Shiro translated by Edward Fowler. Looking at the list of books I want to read I sense a theme of Japanese books translated to English... Can't be helped...

  • huzzah for yearly book reading related shenanigans. :)
  • I didn't realise Ryu Murakami had written Audition. I've read a couple of other books by him and he is wonderfully disturbing. Can I read it when you're done with it?
    • I'm already done with it(Hence the post), I'll try and remember to bring it in next tuesday.
