Going to try and get down on this this year. I've done the movie list for the past few years and my reading has gone way down in favor of that. Plus with grad school it's tough for me to read a lot of what I really want to read. I'm going to try and read/write more and watch less in 2012, though.

I don't get it. Do we post the books we read as we read them or books we plan to read or what?

Post books you've read and I usually add what book I'm currently reading.

Thanks. Sounds interesting, if a little similar to the book thread. I'll try to keep up here, though I'm neglecting goodreads enough as it is :/
