Fifty books, fifty movies in 2012

I signed up for yesterday evening; it's a commitment to read fifty books and watch fifty movies in 2012. The fifty books I'm looking forward to. The fifty movies? I find it hard to sit through most movies. Given the intrinsically passive medium, weaknesses in story or character get my old crazy leg hammering and I'm out.

If things get bad I may need to replace "movies" with, say, "cheeseburgers." We'll see.

Most likely I'll keep a light blog of the books and movies elsewhere, with a link on the right.

Anyone else up for this?


  1. It should be two cheeseburgers for every movie you skip. Just saying... Thanks for signing up!

  2. Wow this sounds great! I am the opposite to you and can easily manage 50 movies (probably already have this year) but 50 books - yikes!
