I Read 63 Books in 2019

As a member of Goodreads you get to set yourself a reading challenge of how many books you want to read in the coming year. In 2017 I set a goal of 40 and read 41. In 2018 I set a goal of 38 and read 39. This year I knew my reading game had […]

A Day at MCM Comic Con London and Why I Love It So Much

Pirates of the Caribbean or Star Tours t-shirt? Star Wars Rebel pilot backpack or classic Star Wars courier bag? Slip on Star Wars scene Vans or lace up Stormtrooper Vans? That last dilemma was easily solved as I couldn’t and still can’t locate that particular pair of Vans – just why do things go missing […]
