Yep a year, the person that made up this challenge orginally had it 6 months but I thought I'd give people a year instead :)

@Tinka I also borrowed your #6...


message 17: by Jason (last edited Aug 11, 2014 02:13AM) (new)

Jason (jasondenness) | 1426 comments Haha. I stole it from elsewhere, so if I go down I'll be taking you with me.

I used to have last chance to see audiobook read by Douglas Adams himself, but I lost it, it was amazing, all you can seem to buy now is the abridged versions which are rubbish.


message 18: by Tinka (new)

Tinka | 495 comments @Annika You already started right? How is it?


message 19: by Annika (new)

Annika | 38 comments @Tinka I really am liking it so far. It is a totally different genre than I am used to, but I love David Sedaris, and it's pretty hilarious. I've already gotten some weird looks from people when I laugh out loud on the bus, so that's always a good sign... It's an auto biography which I hadn't actually expected, but so for, I like it a lot.


message 20: by Annika (new)

Annika | 38 comments @Jason, that's really strange, it's a short book, how can it be abridged even further? Anyyways, if we go down, we go down together... Unless I deny ever having seen that check mark... *dramatic music*


message 21: by Jason (new)

Jason (jasondenness) | 1426 comments It was awful, 4 tracks each 40min long if I remember correctly, must look for it again, used to be on amazon for over £100, (about 40million Aus$) hehe


message 22: by Ash (new)

Ash (evermorefan) | 1068 comments OMG 40 Million dollars in AU!!!!???!!


message 23: by Annika (new)

Annika | 38 comments @Jason That's ridiculous, I don't know why anyone would buy that....

I'm not sure how you got that number, Jason... :)


message 24: by Jason (new)

Jason (jasondenness) | 1426 comments hahahaha something must have gone wrong with the conversion. Had a look on amazon and can't even find it anymore, only audiobook version is the 4 cassette edition which was the cut down version.
