Happy New Year

So 2014 has arrived and once again I have decided to try and be a little more active on this blog. Last year I wanted to get back to writing and I an extent. I did more plotting, outlining and jotting down of notes than anything. This year I plan to be more productive. We'll see.

Last year was also the year I decided that I needed to read more. In years past (OK, more like decades past) I would read voraciously and devour several dozen book in a year. Alas, over the last 12 to 14 years, I seem to have read a lot less. I still buy books and my to-read-list is nearly a mile long, but I only managed to get through a dozen books a year. So in 2013 I tried to read more. As you can see from the list to the left and down some, I only finished 20 books. This year I hope to do much better.

Oddly enough, when looking back to see when it was my reading dropped off, I realize that it began around the time I got online. That darn internet can really suck up one's time, can't it?

I would like to get back to movie reviews for Shadow's B-Movie Graveyard, but right now that is secondary. For now the site is in archive mode. Also noet that whatever email I have listed on that site is no longer functioning, so if anyone has used it to reach me over the last two or three years, I never received any communication. Your best bet is this blog.
