Burn This

Does anyone else find it odd that I saw the same number of movies as I read books?
Favorite book read for the first time--Sex Lives of Cannibals. Highly recommended. Not sure which was my fave film seen for the first time this year. Possibly Volver, 3:10 to Yuma or Hot Fuzz.

Other interesting analysis: while I read the same number of books last year and this year, I saw far fewer films this year than last, most likely because of the lack of influence of the Bad Ex. Whenever the PIG and I try to watch a film at home, I fall promptly asleep. Mmmm, sleep.
