There’s always some kind of rumor going on about Hollywood making a movie out of William Gibson’s Cyber Punk bible Neuromancer. Back in 1988 however, they came close to getting it done! Above is an investor promo made by the Cabana Boys film studios as they tried to gather funding for a film adapation. Not only do they have William Gibson, they even have Timothy Leary in here trying to get this bad boy made!

I’ve mentioned before that I have a loose goal of reading 50 books in 2011. I’m closing in, but with the list currently at 34 in the first week of November…I don’t know that I’m going to make it to 50 by end the end of December! All in all though? I’m not going to complain. My reading is WAY up this year (I give all thanks to that to my Kindle, cause I loves it and it makes me read more) and who can argue about that?

The count so far stands at 34 in the year of 2011! How close will I get? Don’t know! What’s your reading goal for the year? How far have you gotten on your list? Come talk about your book goals over at the Dad and his Weird Friends Discussion Group over at Goodreads!
