My Year of My Years

Posted by on Thu, Sep 17, 2009 at 12:29 PM

A Day in the Life on Twitter directed me to My Year of Everything, which I suppose is a fairly inevitable blog:

You know how every non-fiction book in the last 4 years has been about the author doing some goofy thing for a full year and writing about it? The Year Of Living Biblically, The Whole Five Feet, The Bonfire Of The Brands, etc?

For the next year, I’m going to read one of those books a week, and I’m going to write about it. After 12 months of blogging, I’ll have my own book that will teach you how to be a better person, a better cook, a better lover, and literally everything else. How convenient!

And- SPOILER ALERT- I will learn something about myself in the process.

Thus far, he's done Julie and Julia (a pretty thoughtful review of the book, I think), and he's just moving on to The Whole Five Feet, an unbelievably annoying book about reading the Harvard Classics. I hope he turns this blog into a goddamn book and that it is the very last of the My Year Of books to ever be published.
