Seen, Read 2018

(After Steven Soderberg’s MEDIA LIST)

I recently mentioned how much TV I’ve been watching, and have become curious to know exactly what I’ve been watching (and listening to)—and where my time is going—so I’ve compiled this list for 2018 after seeing what Steven Soderberg did here (and whose link I came across at AustinKleon.com).

Holy cow I consume alot of media! And who knows what I’ve forgotten to list.  I plucked the info from my Libby, CloudLibrary, and library accounts, our movie streaming services’ histories, and my 2018 planners.

In a weird way, compiling this list has helped me clear my mind today.
