Read/Watch List 2012

Here’s my “New Years’ Resolution” list of books and movies that I want to read or watch this year. I tried to keep a good mix of fun and serious stuff (especially for the books) so I’ll be able to read something light and fun after the really heavy stuff. I might be adding things throughout the year as I get excited about new books and movies.
