101 Things To Do Before You Die
As I said I am determined to complete at least one. At the moment I am working on #52 Read the Greatest Books Ever Written. And #57 See the All Time Greatest Films. Compared to most people I know the number of films I have seen and my film knowledge is shockingly poor. Yet it is this one that is winning. I have seen 50 of them thanks to my boyfriend and my parents DVD collection. This one will be harder to complete than the books. Simply because I can get the books no problem. There are some films on the list though that I will only watch if it's on TV. At the moment I have read 33 books on the list and I am working on number 34. I'm not reading them in any order so number 34 for me is Kenneth Grahame's "Wind In The Willows". Surprisingly I am enjoying it. I didn't think that I would. I hated the cartoon when I was little.
The author, Richard Home, is the guy who illustrated the Harry Potter covers and has designed a few websites. He has a new book out at the end of the year, "101 Things To Do Before Your Old And Boring". The chances are I am going to buy this book too and become just as obsessed.
