What I read in 2016 (plus some video selections)

Here is my reading and viewing list for 2016. I recently signed up at Goodreads, so am tempted to migrate or switch over to using that for tracking reading.

Usually I get that feeling of Meh where I wind up finding the plots, characters or […]

Hello GreenCine, Goodbye Netflix

After a couple months of testing, I’ve decided to continue my DVD rentals through GreenCine, instead of Netflix.
