Book reviews and miscellanous thoughts

50-50 Challenge : Completion (sort-of)

Written By: amodini - Dec• 27•12

So, I signed up for this sometime this year. It is hosted by these good folks and the rules are simple:

Commit to reading 50 books and watching 50 movies in the next year, 2012.

The year is ending shortly, so how did I do ?

I’ve seen 50 for sure, and just for kicks I will try and list them all here (links will take you to reviews on my movie blog) :

BOOKS

I’ve read 33 so far (34 if you count “Great North Road” as 2 books, since that was a **tome**), so am 2/3rds of the way through. You can see all of them on Goodreads. Those that I have reviewed appear here.
