Reading/Movie List: The Twilight Zone

Because I finally got off my butt and wrote down my reading/viewing material for the final semester of college...this covers the brief transitional period before I switch the lists from school years to calendar years.  As such, I had no target reading/watching goal, and it's a good thing since I was buried up to my neck in reading for class, and it was all I could do keep pace with assigned books and movies.  And of course, the ten days between the end of the semester and the end of the year were a bust since I was busy diving into the TV I'd missed.

But anyway - take a gander at my impressive number of latter-century classics.  Pretty sure I'll never see that concentration of acclaimed literature again.  Same formatting as usual applies; rereads and books I only read selections from do not count, nor do things under 100 pages long.

Reading List:
1. Northanger Abbey - Jane Austen.  203 pg/1818.
2Doctor Who: Feast of the Drowned - Stephen Cole.  249/2006.
3. Sense and Sensibility - Jane Austen.  240 pg/1811.
4. Considering the Horse: Tales of Problems Solved and Lessons Learned [NF] - Mark Rashid.  212 pg/1993.
5. Lettres d’une Péruvienne (Letters from a Peruvian Woman) - Madame de Graffigny.  120 pg/1747.

6. Emma - Jane Austen.  340 pg/1816.
7. Blake’s Therapy - Ariel Dorfman.  161 pg/2001.
8. Three Tales - Gustave Flaubert.  128 pg/1877.

9. David Copperfield - Charles Dickens.  869 pg/1850.
10. The Reluctant Fundamentalist - Mohsin Hamid.  192 pg/2007.
11. For Better or for Worse: Divorce Reconsidered [NF] - E. Mavis Hetherington & John Kelly.  320 pg/2003.
12. Great Expectations - Charles Dickens.  481 pg/1861.

14. A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian - Marina Lewycka.  294 pg/2005.
15. Shalimar the Clown - Salman Rushdie.  416 pg/2006. (despite the Stockholm Syndrome born of turning it inside out to produce my only quality paper ever written for Miserable Class of Death II)

16. The Way We Really Are: Coming to Terms with America’s Changing Families [NF] - Stephanie Coontz.  256 pg/1998.
17. Our Mutual Friend - Charles Dickens.  787 pg/1865.

Movie List:
1. Babel, R, 2007, 2:23
2. The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, PG-13, 2007, 1:48

3. Recovery, R, 2007, 1:30

4. Children of Men, R, 2007, 1:50

5. Khuda Kay Liye (In The Name of God), PG, 2007, 2:48

Lesson learned: films assigned for class are usually stupid and/or boring.  Oh wait, I knew that one already.
