Welcome to the feature where every fortnight we will explore different topics that are listed in the book A List A Day by Paperchase. They range from food, music and travel to really random topics so I thought it wold be a fun one to talk about throughout the year!
Today’s List – 5 Books I Need To Read
I love reading and I have a very long list of books that I want to read and it keeps getting longer and longer by the day. So I thought instead of writing the list of hundreds I have saved on Goodreads to read I would instead write about 5 on the list that I have.
1.) Memoirs and Misinformation, Jim Carrey and Dana Vachon
I am a huge fan of Jim Carrey so when I heard that he was going to release a book I was really interested in reading it to see what it is actually like. I have heard many interviews with Jim about this book and the podcast Conan Needs A Friend revealed some really interesting things about the book that I am even more intrigued to read it.
2.) Do What You Want: The Story of Bad Religion, Bad Religion and Jim Ruland
Whilst I may not listen to Bad Religion a lot, I do listen to a lot of bands that have been strongly influenced by this group so to me, I personally think it is important to read this book to understand how they began and the development of this genre. I think it will be a really interesting book as well as I am sure there is an adventure to be had.
3.) The Office: The Untold Story of the Greatest Sitcom of the 2000’s: An Oral History, Andy Greene
I really enjoy the Office US and I really enjoy hearing all about the behind the scenes of the show. I would like to read this to gain even more knowledge and I am sure it will have some facts that I may not know in it.
4.) Betrayal, Harold Pinter
I saw this play on the West End with Tom Hiddleston in 2019 and it wasn’t until the end that I truly appreciated the narrative structure of this play. I would like to read the script so I can read it and absorb everything I didn’t the last time I was observing it.
5.) It’s Always Something, GIlda Radner
This is not a book that I would usually add to my reading list but i have read so many other comedians autobiographies that touch lightly om Gilda Radner and she sounds like a really interesting person to read more about so I am going to read this at some point as well.
