Media List: January 2019

Semi-inspired by this article by Jen Myers about keeping a Media List, I am going to try to do just that! Whenever I remember or can, I’m trying to write down things that I completed - so I won’t put a book on here if I am still in progress, etc. The idea is to have a big list at the end of the year of what I read/watched/listened to - which I think is useful to start to see how your life and view is impacted by what you are consuming. Of course, not included in this list are tons of tiny things that I read all the time without even thinking about it - about the news and the weather. But this is still a step and an encouragement for me to really spend my time with content that I enjoy.
