What I’m saying: A lot since starting my new blogging schedule on Monday, but my main post here this week was 2013 Was The Year of Noise for Me. I recounted my ongoing fascination and struggle with noise.
What I’m reading: I finished The Ace of Skulls, the conclusion of a great series, by Chris Wooding last week and posted a quote from that book on Monday. Since then, I’ve only read one other book: The Fault In Our Stars by John Green, which has vaulted to my No. 1 spot for the best book I’ve read this year. I had bought it through my Nook app on my tablet when it was on sale several months ago, but finally just got to it yesterday morning and read it in one setting. The short (as always): Amazing. I’ll also highlight my top five books/series read this year toward the end of the month.
What I’m watching: Throughout the month, I’m highlighting my top three favorite “under-the-radar” movies I’ve seen this year on Fridays. This week I highlighted Sound of Noise, a quirky Swedish-French comedy. I also have been continuing to watch M*A*S*H with my wife (we’re on Season 4) and CSI: NY and Numb3rs on my own (I’m on Season 3). Last night, I watched White Christmas with the #hitchfest group on Twitter.
What I’m listening to: Also this month, I’m highlighting my top three songs of this year on Tuesdays. I’ll also have a top 25 album list at the end of the month. No. 3 is “Song For Zula” by Phosphorescent.
What I’m photographing: And on the photography front, I’ll be highlighting your top three favorite Instagram photos of mine for this year (determined by number of “likes” on Instagram AND my own favorites too) on Wednesdays. No. 3 was a photo I took seven months ago.
I’ll leave you with a photo of a few books I picked up at our library’s book sale this past Friday, including the Percy Jackson series for $5 (SCORE!):
So what have been you reading, watching, listening to, photographing, doing this past week?
