Just joined this today, but let's try:
Aiming for 40 books off the shelves.
Victims for the year (list being updated as I go along):
Did you like Gods Behaving Badly? I've got it on my (relatively) short list.
I did enjoy GBB - I struggled a little for the first 100 pages or so while the character development was being done, but it really picked up from there. I haven't written my review yet but I think it will be 7-8/10.
I tried to put a ticker in my original post but I couldn't make the HTML work. Help? I used TickerFactory.com like everyone else has but I just ended up with this:
(partly because the URL has brackets in it, which LT interprets as touchstones...)
Hi cricketgirl, I am putting a link in that will take for to a thread that really helps with creating links and posting pictures etc. To put your ticker in, read message 4. If you have any more questions, ask away. Someone here will help.
The Instructions Are Here
Oh-Oh Stupid Me? The above is useful information, but to post your ticker you simply need to copy the second box of code - marked HTML. Sorry for the confusion, I had a slight senior moment!!
Yay it works, stupid me, I hadn't read the titles of the boxes properly and tried to use the contents of the box. Anyway Bunny up there is now ready to hop along through my books.
Thanks for the help, Delta :)
I've not been here in a while! Update:
7: The Seamstress by Frances de Pontes Peebles
8: A Pale View of Hills by Kazuo Ishiguro
9: Strike Back by Chris Ryan
10: The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
I shall have to step up the pace a bit and stop borrowing so many books from the library and reading review copies!
ETA will add 4 to personal ticker and 6 to group ticker
Woo hoo I read another one off the shelves! Before I Die by Jenny Downham. Touching YA novel about a dying girl and what is on her "bucket list". Individual and group ticker updated!
And another :) I'm up to 12. Fludd by Hilary Mantel. A short but rather funny one - I was disappointed by the middle part of the romantic thread though. Individual and group tickers updated.
Also I've revised my goal down as I will never get to 40 - 25 seems more reasonable.
One more already (!) - Storm Front by Jim Butcher. A good way to start the new month.
Added to own ticker, will update group at end of month.
