As I mentioned previously, my 30 Things in 2013 listing is in no particular order to complete.
# 24 on this list is “Read all the James Bond books, in order of publication”.
I actually started this “Ian Fleming themed” reading list towards the end of 2012, inbetween reading other novels that had sparked my interest. Reading through this booklist is obviously for fun; a challenge to say I’ve read them all, which was honestly ignited after watching the latest James Bond release “Skyfall” in November ‘12.
The list is as follows:
1953 Casino Royale (Read: 2012-11-18)
1954 Live and Let Die (Read: 2012-12-02)
1955 Moonraker (Read: 2012-12-30)
1956 Diamonds are Forever
1957 From Russia, with Love
1958 Dr. No
1960 For Your Eyes Only (short stories)
1962 The Spy Who Loved Me
1963 On Her Majesty’s Secret Service
1964 You Only Live Twice
1965 The Man with the Golden Gun
1966 Octopussy and The Living Daylights (short stories)
I will update, as the year progresses.
