The $1000 Book Challenge


I am a chronic buyer of books. These are but two of my books shelves. I have more. And boxes of books under the bed,  in cupboards, scattered around, double, triple-stacked.

My book collection is collectively worth more than anything else I own, including my car.

Reading is a massive part of my life. Books, read and re-read are like old friends. However, I’ve realised that out of the hundreds and thousands of libres I own, there are more than a few I have purchased and Never Read.

I’m shamed.

So, until the end of the year I will be reading (almost) each and every one. My conservative estimate is they cost about $700 all up. In reality it’s more like a cool grand. So. The challenge begins.

I like gin, mittens and otters, not necessarily in that order. Here's some stuff I felt like writing down when I'm not chained to a desk writing other things for a living. Please use caution when using this site; there may be sweary words, cute animals and general bullshit. Don't say I didn't fucking warn you.
