One of my resolutions for 2013 is to read more books, see more movies, and watch a number of documentaries that I’ve been meaning to watch. I started Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn one day, and finished it the next day. Not a bad start. Though my kids probably would like a little more parenting from me on the whole.
So I’m going to keep track of what I’m reading, what I like and dislike, and I hope you’ll share with me books that you have really enjoyed.
A few that are on my list to read right now:
Elsewhere a memoir by Richard Russo
The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling
Bel Canto by Ann Patchett (re-read)
On Writing by Stephen King
I’m also going to try to watch some more movies, both in the theatre and on Netflix. Mike and I saw SIlver Linings Playbook on New Years’ Eve and we both really liked it. I will watch it again when it comes out on HBO. Two thumbs up. Jennifer Lawrence is quickly becoming a fave of mine.
The night before that we saw The King’s Speech on Netflix, which I really enjoyed. There are so many movies that I have missed over the last few years. I can start with the Oscar nominees and work my way back through the last few years. Are there any you think I should start with? Indie favorites?
I follow UnMarketing on Facebook and he asked about documentaries and I compiled a huge list to watch, many of which are on Netflix.
Waiting for Superman, Forks Over Knives, Hungry for Change, Vegucated, Craigslist Joe, Searching for Sugarman, and Murder by Proxy
I think this is a resolution I’m really going to enjoy.
What are you reading and watching these days? Do you have a list? What are your past favorites?
