There’s this Facebook/Livejournal/blog meme passed to me from [livejournal.com profile] red_silk_robe, [livejournal.com profile] kiri_l (and no doubt others), saying:

“The BBC believes most people will have read only 6 of the 100 books here. How do your reading habits stack up?
Instructions: Copy this into your NOTES. Look at the list and put an ‘x’ after those you have read. Tag other book nerds.”

(Note that the BBC’s own list of the top 100 books as voted for by the British public are very different to what you see below)

Time was, I could start a book at 9pm, and finish it only to realise it was dawn outside and it was 5am. Nowadays, I glance at my watch when watching a sitcom…

Abandoned cinema

Originally uploaded by andre.govia

Despite describing myself as a film geek, I haven’t actually seen that many films. At least, recently. But let’s see how many I have seen…

Apparently, if you’ve seen over 85 films, you have no life. (What about those of us who’ve never had a life to begin with ?!)

Mark the ones you’ve seen. There are 239 films on this list. Copy this list, and see how many you’ve seen…
