And by contrast, I saw 47 movies/DVDs.

  1. I must admit how happy I was to see the breakdown between audio and paper. I wondered where a father, husband and WoW adict found all that time to read 🙂
    Did you buy audio or rent? Or check out from the library?
    I’m tallying mine list of titles up this weekend. I think it’ll be around your paper total, with only 2 audio books in the mix.
    I’m having trouble deciding best/worst. If all else fails I’ll go with my annual favorite, “Atlas Shrugged”.

  2. Dude, it’s all about the audiobooks. 🙂 I get mine from a variety of sources, including the library (the downtown San Diego Library has a HUGE selection) and downloads from places like audible.com.
    Atlas Shrugged your best, worst, or both? 😉
