Fifty books. Fifty movies. One challenge. One year. The best New Year's resolution you're going to fulfill in 2015.

Rules.
  1. Read 50 books.
  2. Watch 50 movies.


Frequently Asked Questions.

  • No really, what are the rules? It's that simple. Read 50 books you've never read before. Watch 50 movies that you've never seen before. Doesn't matter if it was filmed in 1939 or written in the seventeenth century. If it's new material for you, it counts!
    [*]Do I win something? An expanded mind.
    [*]Can I lie? The sheep can smell lies.
    [*]Who tracks my progress? You do. I'll keep everything organized so everyone can easily see your amazing taste in media.
    [*]What counts as a book? Resident bookworm Mumei says a book is longer than 100 pages. But really, it's up to you.
    [*]Do comics/graphic novels count? Of course! How you want to count them is up to you. They're quicker to read, so most of us might count a "run" as a book. Say you're reading a few of the Saga trade paperbacks. You might want to count four or so as a single book. Use your best judgement!
    [*]What if it's really, really long? If it's more than 500 pages, feel free to count it as two books. But if it's 1000 pages, don't count it as three.
    [*]What counts as a movie?A film around 90 minutes.
    [*]What about tv showsWe're gonna go with no. A lot of folks keep track of the tv seasons they watch, in addition to movies.
    [*]What about school textbooks? As far as academic/research/school material goes, my rule is, if I read it cover to cover, I count it as a book.
    [*]I haven't seen this movie/read this book in a decade. Can I count it? It's up to you, but it's a bit frowned upon.
    [*]Why sheep? It's the year of the ram!

Hints and Tips (Shamelessly stolen, I mean, provided by Tragicomedy).
  • Prioritize reading early and often! Participants in last year’s thread watched twice as many movies as they read books, since the time commitment and mental effort tends to be significantly less on the film front. Theoretically, you could binge watch all 50 movies in a month or two and be done with that aspect of the challenge. If you’re reading a regular 300+ page book, that is unlikely to hold true on the book front.
  • Avoid “dead time.” My wife gets hooked on HGTV programs because when they finish an episode they cut straight to the next one without a commercial break. That’s their hook, and it’s quite effective. Treat reading the same way. Finish a book knowing what you want to read next and try to start it immediately. Even reading 10-15 pages might be all it takes to get you immersed in your next book.
  • Read every night as you fall asleep, or find time to squeeze in a chapter or two during break times at work. If you can read ~30 minutes to an hour a day, you should be able to finish the challenge quite easily (and maybe even early).
  • Lists can be super helpful! Goodreads, in particular, is a great way to track what you’ve read and what’s in your queue to read next.
  • Consider picking up a Kindle or e-reader of your choice. One very common trend you’ll hear among e-reader users is they actually read more and at a faster pace than they do with physical copies of books. That has certainly been my experience.
  • Check out some classics. Some stuff may be dated, but there are a ton of gems out there ready to be discovered by a younger generation.
  • Find your niche! I’m a science fiction and fantasy guy. I can blast through a 1K page fantasy book faster than I could ever finish a 300 page love story. Feel free to expand your horizons but know what’s in your current wheelhouse.
  • Ask for suggestions in this thread and monitor what others are enjoying. A few of the very best books I read or movies I saw were direct recommendations in last year’s thread.
  • Similarly, if you’ve discovered the best book/film ever, shout it from the rooftops! You might just sell us all on our next story.


How to Sign-Up and Update your Progress.
  1. Make a post in the thread. This will be where you keep your list. Come back and edit it when you want to add something new. I'll be linking to everyone's list in the next post.
  2. Post your updates with the following format:
    Pau - 37/50 books | 31/50 movies
Please use the INDENT tab to help me find your updates!​

I'm going to be going through the thread for updates every last day of the month, so there's no need to post every single time you finish a book or movie. If you can, try to post your monthly progress all at once. That doesn't mean you shouldn't discuss what you're reading and watching throughout the year.

I'll also be starting each month with a recommendation list in case anyone needs somewhere to get started. If you have any suggestions, let me know!

Good luck!​

I will try it. Always seen this thread, but I never thought about attempting it. I will probably destroy the 50 movie goal since I'm a huge movie buff. The book goal will be harder since I don't read, but I'm hoping this challenge helps to change that.

I'm going to try this. I haven't done traditional reading since high school and part of college as well so maybe this can give me a head start. I'll join in for the fun, looks like a great challenge.

Now, what is a good source for books?

Now, what is a good source for books?
Mumei is my source for books. :p

You can always look through the reading threads. I like to use Goodreads to see what friends and gaffers are reading.

With the monthly updates, I'd also like to post a short, but diverse list of suggestions. I know that one of my problems with completing the movie portion is just finding stuff that'd be interesting. Like I said in the OP, if anyone wants me to highlight a recommendation, PM me!

I should attempt this. I could easily do the movies, books might be more difficult. I read about 25 books during the summer but not much throughout the year (beyond comics and academic stuff for studying). Since getting a kindle I'm often struck down by the paradox of choice too.

Now, what is a good source for books?
Adding gaffers on Goodread is a valuable way to gain good sources. I get my book recommendations from Mumei, Tragic, and Pau.

I'm going to bother Pau so much to recommend The Traitor's Heart for people. Readers should know about the Apartheid!

Update (8/30) Finally finished The Dragon Reborn. I think I'll finish up some books on my tablet before continuing Wheel of Time.

gaiages - 10/50 Books | 41/50 Movies

Books
1. Boss Fight Books: Chrono Trigger [194 pgs] (Pretty interesting, but overall a bit rambling and unfocused)
2. Delay: Paying Attention to Energy Mechanics [?? pgs; ebook only] (Actually pretty good read about stamina in mobile games)
3. Stuff You Should Know About Stuff: How to Properly Behave in Certain Situations [234 pgs] (Amusing)
4. In Play [362 pgs] (Actually pretty good, and the author's personal experiences were welcome)
5+6. A Dance with Dragons [1056 pgs] (Started off pretty slow, but ramped up to some great stuff. My favorite character's very likely dead, though ;-;)
7+8. The Great Hunt [681 pgs] (The pacing was a little slow, but overall alright. I don't really like the Egwene chapters, hopefully her character will get better)
9+10 The Dragon Reborn [704 pgs] (Still hating the Egwene chapters. I'm pretty glad this one focused on everyone but Rand, though, it was nice to flesh out the other characters)

Currently reading: eBooks

Movies
1. Anchorman 2 ★★ (So meh, and I enjoyed the first Anchorman)
2. Snowpiercer ★★★★★ (Fantastic)
3. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters ★★★ (Better than I expected... so above average)
4. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire ★★★ (Not invested in the universe, watched with friends. Good production values, I think)
5. Sharknado ★ (Took too long for shark tornado to pop up. Disappointing, and I love B-rate movies)
6. Side Effects ★★★ (Very interesting, don't want to talk about it and ruin it, though)
7. Boy Next Door ★★ (Saw with friends. Thought it was going to be a love story. It... wasn't. Pretty bad. Extra star for how the people in the theater acted, made the movie a lot better :p)
8. The Switch ★★★★ (Cute and funny little romantic comedy. I liked it. Friends made me watch it.)
9. John Wick ★★★★ (Action-y. Shoot-y. Kill-y. DaFoe-y. Fun to watch.)
10. Johnny English Reborn ★★★ (Silly spy movie parody. It is what it is.)
11. Revenge of the Bridesmaids ★ (Why do my friends make me watch these things)
12. Ip Man ★★★★ (A wonderful, not cheesy kung-fu flick. I'll be watching the other two eventually.)
13. Tron ★★★★ (As expected, it's a tad outdated, but still very good)
14. Chappie ★★ (Uh, what the fuck at that second half. Ending was kinda meh too)
15. Jay and Slient Bob Strike Back ★★★ (Not bad, I suppose, but not really that great either. I wish Clerks 2 was on Netflix instead of this)
16. Scott Pilgrim Save the World ★★★★ (Honestly, it's pretty fun to watch)
17. Jurassic World ★★★★ (Super campy. Haven't watched a Jurassic Park movie since the original, so I wasn't bothered by the 'same-ness' of the plot)
18. Kid Cannabis ★★ (Pretty boring, to be honest. Typical 'criminal rise and fall' story where you're supposed to feel bad for the guy. Would have felt bad if he acted less like a dick.)
19. Iron Man 2 ★★★ (Acceptable)
20. 7 Days of Hell ★★★ (Silly)
21. Mad Max: Fury Road ★★★★★ (The most metal movie I've seen in my life. Amazing)
22. Sharknado 2: The Second One ★★ (Everyone says this one's worst than the first, but I liked it more. More action... and sharks. Doesn't mean it's good, though)
23. Hot Rod ★★★★ (Pretty hilarious)
24. Guardians of the Galaxy ★★★★★ (Awesome. Can't wait for the second one!)
25. Double Wedding ★ (Spoiler alert: There was a *triple*wedding at the end! False advertising!)
26. The Hangover ★★★★ (That was pretty darn funny)
27. Puff Puff Pass ★★ (I suppose I've seen worse low rate movies)
28. Kill Bill Vol. 1 ★★★★★ (Awesome~)
29. Kill Bill Vol. 2 ★★★★ (Slightly less awesome, but still.)
30. Dope ★★ (Mildly interesting at first, but eventually turned into the stereotypical drug and black empowerment plotline. Was hoping it would be a little more unique.)
31. King Pin ★★ (That was interesting, I guess)
32. Three-Headed Shark Attack ★ (...)
33. The Maze Runner ★★★★★ (Wow, that was really good :eek:)
34. Escaflowne ★★★★ (Breath of Fire: The Movie)
35. Beetlejuice ★★★★ (Huh, that still holds up well enough)
36. Kung Fury ★★★★★ (Awesome action movie parody/homage)
37. Congo ★★★ (That was... weird. Okay, but weird.
38. The Waterboy ★ (I really don't like Adam Sandler all that much)
39. John Carter ★★★★ (That was pretty interesting!)
40. What We Do in the Shadows ★★★★★ (OMG)
41. Justice League: Of Gods and Monsters ★★ (What... what is going on? Is this the New 52 crew? Bleh)
