I really must catch up on my reading. The plan was to read 50-100 books this year, but I've only read 3 so far. I was going to see Hannibal Rising after I had read the book but haven't even started it yet! I went to the post office this morning and another 4 books have arrived ... 1 BC book ring, 2 BC RABCKs and 1 mooch from BookMooch, they are going straight on the very large TBR pile. Why can't there be more reading time and less work time?

I might have more reading time if I wasn't obsessed with tv box sets. Supernatural Season 1 for $26 = very happy me.

I'm contemplating switching ISPs, so if you have any recommendations please let me know. I'm currently with Optus Cable on a 12/24G plan for $67 per month with every third month free. I would like similar pricing but better down/up speeds ... Optus is way too slow these days. Thanks!
I'm going to cheat slightly and start my 100 50 book challenge in my Christmas holidays, so this will be the post I keep updated.

Edit: 100 may be slightly ambitious since I don't get to read in my lunch break anymore, so I'm aiming for 50.

1. Where the Heart Is
Bille Letts
BookCrossing book ring. I had seen the movie and quite liked it so thought I'd give the book a try and it was much better than the movie. Still it felt like I had to rush through it so I could send to next person.

2. The Secret Life of Bees
Sue Monk Kidd
BookCrossing book ring.

3. Anybody Out There?
Marian Keyes
BookCrossing book ring. I expected this to be just another chick lit but it was surprisingly really good!

4. The Life of Pi
Yann Martel
BookCrossing book ring. Totally surprising read, very addictive and highly recommended.

5. The Book Thief
Markus Zusak
BookCrossing book ring. It's supposed to be a young adult book but I loved it. So much I'm going to buy it.

6. Only Forward
Michael Marshall-Smith
BookCrossing book ring. Totally hilarious sci fi adventure. Top read.

7. The Book of Fred
Abby Bardi
BookCrossing book ring. Currently reading.

Hannibal Rising
Thomas Harris
Christmas present. Every time I try to read it another book ring turns up. Maybe by next Christmas I will have finished it. Probably quicker to rent the DVD.
