A New Year

A new goal, and a new blog. A friend posted on Facebook about her goal of reading at least 50 books and 50 films, that came from this website. I told her I thought it would be easy. I read and record book for Minnesota's Radio Talking Book. I have two book clubs. And I read one or two other things at the same time as all the other reading I do. So we will see. Can I read basically a book a week?

 I'll have no trouble with seeing 50 films. I'll easily see double that. Last year at the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Film Festival, I saw 68 films.

Right now I'm reading The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson, Persepolis 2 by Marjane Satrapi, The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel , and a new one for SSB, American Wasteland, by Jonathan Bloom.
