The Supremes seem like a nostalgic way to end the year and reflect on 2012.
Personally I had a good year. There were no big steps backwards. I didn't have the best of reading years--less than 200 books--but it certainly wasn't the worst either.
Some Favorite Books of the year include:
- The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry
- Bring Up the Bodies
- Telegraph Avenue
- Esther Waters
- The Fault in Our Stars
- Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass: An American Slave
- The Power of Habit
- The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion
- In One Person
The same could be said for my movie viewing. I watched less than 300 movies, but that isn't bad--not having a TV really helps. If you can't stream it on Netflix or get it on a DVD, I couldn't watch it. That doesn't eliminate all the detritus from the video landscape but it sure helps.
