Attempted numerous times and always waylaid but there's never been a better time to tackle that beast.

If you're looking for audibooks, can highly recommend Keith Richards' autobiography. Part read by Johnny Depp. Listen to it at least once every year or so.

Why do you listen to it so often?

I struggle to read books more than once.

Not sure to be honest. I think because a lot of it is anecdotes, its quite easy to dip in and out of. I guess being a stones fan helps! Laughing out loud If I find something I like I can easily listen to it several times over. Same with programmes, which makes more sense I guess.

Got Bryson's Short History and At Home a few years back, started but never finished so digging them back out.

Kill your friends is an entertaining book!

Follow up isnt so good but it’s pretty funny still. Prob a very accurate description of what happened with Jackson too..
