New August and September Media  
The last time I posted my new media lists was way back at the end of July, and I didn't really have that many readers of this LJ at that time.  So, basically, I've been keeping track of the new books I read, movies I see, and scripted TV I watch for three years now.  At first I started it because it was a really popular meme, but I've kept doing it for two reasons.  One: I like keeping track of things.  I like lists.  I don't know.  Two: It's really helpful to know where I am in both book series and TV shows, if I end up letting time pass.  So right now, there are two different series that I've wandered away from, and it's really easy to look back and say, which was the last book I read?  And just look it up, instead of going to the library and reading the back covers and trying to remember.  Same with TV.  Right now, I'm like, what the hell was the last episode of Dexter I watched?  Since it's been, oh, six months or so since I last watched an episode.

So I mostly just post these for my own benefit.  Feel under no obligation to read and/or comment.

The goals are to read 50 books, see 100 movies, and watch 500 episodes of scripted TV.  I don't worry about anything other than the book goal, which is a reasonable and I think laudable goal to try and meet each year.  I never come close on movies, and I don't see the point in stressing about TV - I watch plenty, and I'm not worried about trying to reach a certain number, especially since I love to rewatch old TV all the time.  In fact, rewatching and rereading is why my book and movie numbers were so low these past two months.  That, and being busy writing and such.

Isn't "A Game of Thrones" in that long George R.R. Martin series? I keep meaning to start that, but I never remember to pick up the first book at the library.

I have such a hard time with long fics anymore, especially those on FFN. I just can't read on the computer that much. I should be a good girl and save all my money for this trip and then for Christmas, but I really want to get an e-reader. And not just for fic, though boy, would that be awesome, too.

I am so excited about Caprica tomorrow! I was going to rewatch the last few episodes today and tomorrow, but I forgot I'm volunteering at the library's health fair today, so...maybe tomorrow. I'll probably only have time for the finale, in that case.
