Thoughts on November’s Reading:

  • I’m in a terrible reading slump.  There’s no way through it but through it, but man, am I feeling it right now.



  • I’ve been watching a lot of Law & Order: SVU and I can’t explain it.  Whatever, haters to the left.
  • J. and I are working our way through The Sopranos.

Movies Watched: 9
New: 4
Re-Watch: 5
Theater Trips: 1

  • The only movie I saw in the theater this month was Mockingjay, and it was also really great.
  • Aside from that, no real standouts this month. I liked Far From Heaven (though the score was completely overpowering).  About Time was straight-up AWFUL and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty wasn’t at all what I expected.  Both of those movies feature super creepy dudes who do weird things around women, now that I think of it.  Hm.

Goals for December:

  • Still trying to hit 200 books by the end of December.
  • I’d like to find another TV show I haven’t seen before to watch (suggestions welcome), and of course I hope to fit in some more movies.
