New goal for a New Year
Jane

After spending a great deal of time on the internet yesterday before we hit a new decade, I came along a really good idea, watching 100 movies and reading 50 books this year as a resolution.

I will do my best to try and make my own review of each one here but I know I will at least post them here. I'll be counting movies I have never seen before or haven't finished watching, same for books.

I hope I make it.
