Having thoroughly enjoyed Bec I am Looking foreword to reading the next instalment in the series.
What is the Title/Topic of the book (non-fiction) you are reading?

What is the last live performance you attended?
I saw a performance of Oklahoma at the Wolsey theatre in Ipswich in the summer, performed by the Appeal Theatre group, a group which my family is heavily involved. The performance was excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed it and I am proud of all of my friends who were involved.
What is the title of the last film you saw at the cinema?
A few weeks ago I saw Guardians of the Galaxy at Cine-world. It is hard to describe my experience because it was so excellent that my words fail me. If it is possible to imagine a cross between Star Wars and Firefly, you have Guardians of the Galaxy. All I can really say is that it is a must see film for everyone.
How often do you read a newspaper?
I don't really read newspapers, I used to read them at school but only really to browse through them and I never payed much attention to them other than to laugh with my friends over the infamous Daily Mail horoscopes.
Which art gallery did you last visit?
I last visited the Tate Modern on a GCSE Photography trip and even though I was studying art at the time, many of the exhibitions went over my head apart from the occasional gem which made sense to me in some way or maybe I thought looked "cool".
How many hours a week do you spend playing video games?
Far too many. I spend a lot of time playing games such as CS:GO and Diablo 3, either grinding for hours looking for gear for my level 70 monk or failing miserably, getting killed round after round in competitive Counter-Strike.
How many hours a week do you spend playing non digital games?
I have been taking part in a few board games in the Games Society here and have enjoyed most of the new games that i have been introduced to and i would like to spend more time playing non digital games as they are in some ways more social than video games and I believe I could learn a lot from their mechanics.
