20X20 Project

The lovely Chris from http://www.dreamstuffbooks.com/blog/ is working on a 50X50 project that  you can see on his tumblr: http://chrisa511.tumblr.com/post/1095611155/50x50-list and I decided to co-opt the idea for myself, but scale it down slightly.

I'm putting it up here because I don't want to clutter http://justaddbooks.blogspot.com/ with it, and I don't want to start a tumblr - I barely have time to maintain the blogs that I DO have, so this one has been pressed into service for my own little 20X20 project - 20 things of 20 each that I'd like to do. There's no deadline on it, so I'm probably just going to poke at it when I remember. or abandon it totally when I get bored and move on to something else

Anyway, here's my list, which took me way too long to compile, and is heavy on book-related things:

Go to 20 live shows
Find 20 children's classic books to read to/with Patrick
Buy 20 singles by artists I've never heard of
Read 20 novels by Kiwi authors
I've been doing this one by accident, because of my Kiwi YA challenge, and NZ Book month.
So far this year I've read
- Dreamhunter and Dreamquake by Elizabeth Knox
- The Changeover by Margaret Mahy
- Genesis by Bernard Beckett
- August by Bernard Beckett
- The Scarecrow by Ronald Hugh Morrieson
- The 10pm Question by Kate deGoldi
- The Sea-wreck Stranger by Anna Mckenzie
Read 20 novels by authors I've never heard of
Watch 20 classic films, broken down by genre (eg: 5 horror classics, 5 fantasy classics, 5 film noir classics, 5 comedy classics)
- The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (classic horror)
Buy 20 new pieces of clothing
Donate to 20 charities
Cryptic but for it to count I don't want to go into details. So far this year, two charitable donations made
20 Pay it forwards
