Fifty/Fifty – 2015

fiftyfifty.me

The goal of the fiftyfifty.me challenge is to read 50 new-to-me books and watch 50 new-to-me movies in one year. Since I’m a book blogger and read more than 50 books a year, that part shouldn’t be too difficult, but I don’t watch many movies. I rewatch my favorites whenever I see them on cable — and those won’t count — so the movie half is going to be the challenge for me.
