This post is completely not about YouTube. Okay I might mention it once but that is it.
I was reading this book about a dude that flies using industrial contraptions - Airman or something. It was by Eoin Colfer who is a favourite of mine, although nothing will beat his Artemis Fowl books. According to Wikipedia there is a sixth book and a movie in the works - and that fills me with all kinds of happiness.
Anyway, what happened was when I was about five chapters into the flying-person book the library sent me an email telling me that An Abundance of Katherines by John Green had finally come in. Of course I dropped everything and read it. I read it and finished it. It was very good, although I personally prefer Looking for Alaska - that's just me.
Currently I'm reading Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol. I've never read it before and I'm enjoying it a lot. It's very subversive in a nonsense kind of way - not Disneyfied at all.
NERD ALERT! <--(Oh go on. You love it.)
There is, however, one problem. I might not be reading much right now because the fiveawesomeguys have set the Pokéchallenge. That is, we all have to complete the oldest version of a Pokémon game we can find and talk about it in our videos. I figured I'd do the completing bit but leave the updates for the blog, rather than making videos that just say "I got a Snorlax! And... that's all. Kbai."
Also because I'm a sucker for punishment, I'm completing the LeafGreen version (a remake of the old Blue version) using only normal-type Pokémon. I've done this before, but I used fire and then water-type Pokémon. I might have done some other types too - but I can't remember. It was ages ago!
It's very fun. If you want to do it using only one type of Pokémon then let me know!
