I love doing this at the end of the year lol: Post the first sentence of the first post of every month in 2016 (as usual not counting the books I read lol)

January: 1. When were you last up on the house top?
February: This list may seem small compared to my lists last year, but The Worst Journey in the World was over 500 pages long haha
March: Reading "longer" books makes my monthly book lists look sad :P
April: That's more like it :D
May: Only one book finished this month?
June: The Fur Person by May Sarton (May 16) (I read this one in less than an hour..I read May's book in May!) [Well nevermind, I guess that one does count lol]
July: How is June over already? D:
August: Antarctica by Kim Stanley Robinson (July 8-24. Loved!!! A novel, but full of Antarctic history, and lots of mentions of Apsley Cherry-Garrard, who wrote The Worst Journey in the World)
September: Crossing Antarctica by Will Steger and Jon Bowermaster (Aug 23-31). This book sounded like a modern Worst Journey in the World..I'm surprised Cherry was never mentioned!
October: I probably could have finished a 7th book this month, but it just didn't happen lol..darn :P
November: Some guy in the introduction to The Home of the Blizzard said that book outshone The Worst Journey in the World..umm no lol
December: Also, my job is awesome

I love that The Worst Journey in the World was the first book I read this year. :D I didn't know it would change my life so dramatically though!

I just discovered the song I've been loving on the radio lately is "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana. It's weird to Google a song to see if you've heard it before and it's one you hear all the time haha


This pic of Cherry is in his biography by Sara Wheeler:

Wow, wow, and WOW. I just melted on the floor *SWOONS* (My grandma keeps "liking" my Facebook posts about Cherry..that makes me feel weird for whatever reason :P)
