I tried to complete the 2015 Reading Challenge where you are given a list of categories and are to read 52 books over the course of the year. Sadly, I am only going to accomplish 16 of them, and that's if I can finish the book I'm on now, which is the Rolling Stone Interviews from 1971.
A couple of the books I read turned out to be very difficult and I am one of those people who hates to give up on a book so I read them to the end, even though it took me much longer than I would have liked. I am looking for the 2016 list and if I can't find one, I'm going to use this one again and continue with the categories I haven't done yet.
Although I did read a few good books, I'd have to say the best one I read this year was "Rod" the autobiography of Rod Stewart. We've seen him in concert a few times and it was really interesting to read the back story.
He is a good storyteller and I was interested in the pictures he shared and the stories behind some of the songs he sings and how he puts his shows together.
|When he toured with Stevie Nicks, which was around|
the time he was writing the book.
He talks about his family and how much he loves being a father, even though he had trouble with his relationships. And he talks about his hair and the pranks he plays. Those were some of the funniest parts of the book. I would definitely recommend it, especially if you are a Rod fan.
What about you? Read any books I should add to my list? Love to hear about them.
