Read 2012

UPDATE: Thanks to @gm928 for telling me how to find my profile information!


You can always look at what I'm reading on my blog (down the side, where the widgets lie) or at my Shelfari page which you can click through to.

Lately I've mostly been using my YouTube Channel as a place to list movies or books that I had seen or read lately. Well, YouTube sure showed me. They changed the layout and now the Books and Movie section is gone. Gone! I knew it was coming but I missed my Reminder (that I had set up on my iPhone) to copy what was listed on the site and now it is lost. Lost to the days when YouTube wanted you to remember what books and movies were! I'm just kidding, of course. I recently just watched some videos I made during the time of the release of Youth In Revolt, and it was a nice memory. I think that, above all the bullshit that comes out of putting yourself out there in the world, the one thing you have at the end of the day, is the memories. The intimate memories with the environment surrounding you or the people you made it with or the effort involved. I'll always treasure that.

Well, so here it is, the place where my list will now go. I hope someone knows how to look at sites from a few days ago. My Mum says my website is archived, but it's the really old version of TheHill88 back when she actually had Hills... as the background picture. Moving on!


Richard Brinsley Sheridan: A Live by Linda Kelly,

At Work with Grotowski on Physical Actions by Thomas Richards,

The Ballad of Reading Gaol by Oscar Wilde,

Annie Leibovitz: At Work - I borrowed this from the library this afternoon and couldn't stop reading it. I didn't know that the famous portrait of John Lennon and Yoko Ono that Leibovitz took was only shot hours before he was killed. That knowledge and the reflection of the photograph made me cry.

The White Queen by Philippa Gregory - a little embarrassing at first because it starts out as a simply romance novel, borrowed from a friend.
