Remember those naysayers, who said nay, and so forth? In fact, they said these sorts of things…
‘GOOD LUCK, Simon! I wonder how many days you’ll last? ;-)”Is that IN 2010 or AT 20:10? I think the latter is more likely.’
‘Hilarious. I’ll watch and laugh.’
‘I simply could not possibly do this. And I seriously wonder if you can.”WOW. I look forward to seeing how this pans out…..”I’m still speechless at Simon’s decision to curtail book-buying, and if the resolution were made by anyone less sincere, I would suspect a Publicity Stunt! I can hardly imagine not buying books when you live in *England,* the *home* of books”Will you keep this up now that I tell you Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters is in all good bookshops?'(and perhaps my favourite…) ‘what evs!’That’s what my faithful followers… well, I must be honest, lots of you lovely people were 100% behind me, cheering me and sending positive thoughts in my direction. And even, on occasion, forcibly dragging me away from bookshops.
But you’ll be pleased to note that, at the halfway stage, I have bought (*drum roll, if you will*) 11 books! That’s right – eleven. As in, one fewer than twelve. As in: I’m ahead of target!
And it’s not been easy. Not by a long chalk. But I will persevere… and on December 31st 2010 I shall sit back, content, proud, and happy. And on January 1st 2011, I will empty my Amazon wishlist…
Here, in no particular order, are the books that have found their way to Stuck-in-a-Book’s home in the past six months (remember that, as ever, you can click on the Project 24 picture in the top-right to see more details posts on all these books):
