Library Haul #3

Welcome to my most colourful library haul to date!

The 100 Most Pointless Things In The World, Alexander Armstrong & Richard Osman (2012)
This quirky coffee table book from the presenters of BBC game show Pointless takes a closer look at some of the everyday things that could be considered 'pointless'. Intertwined within the short chapters are quiz questions, anagrams and facts to keep readers (and fans of the show) on their toes!

Will Grayson, Will Grayson, John Green & David Levithan (2010)
Another day another John Green title. Despite not adoring any of his novels that I have read to date (I've liked them all but none have become favourites) I seem to have them all on my TBR list for 2014... maybe I'm just determined to find one that I love? Or maybe I just feel like I need to catch up? Anyway, Will Grayson, Will Grayson sees Green team up with fellow YA author David Levithan to tell the story of two teens with the same name.

Reality Is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World, Jane McGonigal (2010) 
When I came across the description of this title by game designer Jane McGonigal I was very intrigued. The author has explored how the alternative realities and challenges found in games are effecting us, arguing that gaming is having a positive effect on the way real-life issues are solved. Whether I'll actually find the time to get through the whole thing before I have to return it to the library is another story...

Have you read any of these titles?
