What I read and watched in January
It is a feature of my life that there is always way more to read and watch than there is time to do the reading and the watching, but I do try, you know.
What I read this month, in chronological order:
Putain by Nelly Arcand, How to Change your Mind by Michael Pollan (fantastically interesting but too long for me; I reluctantly abandoned a third of the way through), Braving the Wilderness by Brené Brown, The Uses and Abuses of History by Margaret MacMillan, Unshakeable by Tony Robbins (don’t judge; I only skimmed it).
Still in progress: The Road to Little Dribbling by Bill Bryson, Bonheur d’occasion by Gabrielle Roy, Chanson douce by Leila Slimani, Delta of Venus: Erotica by Anais Nin (on recommendation of Tim Ferriss, not for sensitive souls fair warning), Women Talking by Miriam Toews.
What I watched this month, ditto:
The Grinch, Jason Bourne (the newish one), Unknown, Snowden, Steve Jobs biopic (it was interesting except roughly two hours too long), Inside Out, Toy Story 3, The Catcher was a Spy, Thank You for Smoking, Botany of Desire (Michael Pollan documentary, fell asleep and felt terribly guilty because I love him), The Crown (rewatching the series, about half-way through the first season), Cars 3.
