    Reaching 60 is huge. I had to do something to mark my big birthday! I hit upon the original idea of travelling a mile in 60 different ways during my birthday year. Trying to think of 60 felt like a challenge in itself, not to mention that twelve months in the year meant I had to achieve an average of five per month! Some of them were easy enough and others not quite so easy, in fact quite challenging, but it gave me a real focus for the whole year. I had great fun and felt a tremendous sense of achievement as one by one I ticked them off. I had a wonderful year culminating in a great party for which I had been determined to lose weight. Did I succeed? I should have done as I had a whole year…….but did I????

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it is a great quirky idea to do something different to mark a milestone birthday. It is very well written in an easy flowing style with plenty of humour. Sophie does some totally daft, (and sometimes scary) things just because she set herself a challenge. With a fierce determination to complete her challenge you have to ask why?....To which the answer is well why not, I'm not old yet. In these days when TV and books show extraordinary feats of endurance by almost superhuman people it's good to hear of more reachable challenges by someone who is not an athlete and who like most of us faces the day to day challenges with her family and her weight. The book is very well illustrated throughout with photos taken by her supportive husband. So real, so funny ...but did she complete the challenge - you'll just have to read it to find out.

    Dave, 5/5
