Lists of 2011

Not much to say up-front. My lists this year are incomplete. Somewhere in the middle I stopped writing down the books I'd read and the movies I'd seen. These two lists are not in order either, but it's a good chunk of the truth.

One more thing, this is a little "game" my brother and I play every year. The goal is to have more books than movies on the list. The rest of the rules are arbitrary and change as fast as we can think of reasons to change them.
