The challenge is simple: You have one year to read 50 new books and watch 50 new movies.

Rules:

  • 1) Read 50 books. Watch 50 movies.
  • 2) Follow this format:
    GK86 - 0/50 books | 0/50 movies

That is it. Two simple rules.




How to sign up:

All you have to do is make a post in this very thread. Your initial post will be where you update your list. So whenever you watch or read something new, update this post!

One more thing that needs to be repeated. When you are updating your post/list, please follow the format: GK86 - 0/50 books | 0/50 movies

The format will make everyone's life easier. At the end of the each month, you should be posting your monthly progress. I will also be updating the master list around this time.




FAQ's:

  • What do you mean by 'new'? It doesn't matter what year the book/movie was released in, as long as you have NEVER seen or read it before, it counts.
  • What is the prize for finishing the challenge? You will win some brownie points.
  • What is stopping me from lying? Absolutely nothing, but, why would you?
  • Ok, I'm in. Who keeps track of what I read/watch? You do! Update your initial post as you rack up the books and movies.
  • What counts as a book? Anything over 100 pages.
  • Do Audiobooks/Textbooks count? Yes.
  • What if it is really long? If it is more than 500 pages, you may count it as two books. The trend stops with two books though.
  • What about Comics/graphic novels? Use your best judgement. Rule of thumb, a "run" would be consider one book.
  • What counts as a movie? 90+ minutes of pure enjoyment.
  • Can I count my favorite tv show? Most will say no. One season = one movie. Use your best judgement.




Hints and Tips (from fellow Tragiccomedy):

  • 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.

I haven't 100% decided if I'm going to do it again this year. The challenge is sort of at a weird spot for me where 50 books is something I basically do on my own and so has little impact on my reading, where 50 movies is a massive obstacle that feels way out of my reach. And then I end up pushing to watch a bunch of crappy movies just to meet the quota. I didn't meet the movie goal last year, didn't even come close, and I'm going to have to think about whether I'll try again this year.

One thing I'm strongly considering doing is having my own personal subgoal of reading a few challenging books for the year. Maybe something like 10.

I am little better prepared for it this time around. I have a few books I own that I need/want to read, and I actually have a small backlog of movies to watch too to get me started.

I haven't 100% decided if I'm going to do it again this year. The challenge is sort of at a weird spot for me where 50 books is something I basically do on my own and so has little impact on my reading, where 50 movies is a massive obstacle that feels way out of my reach. And then I end up pushing to watch a bunch of crappy movies just to meet the quota. I didn't meet the movie goal last year, didn't even come close, and I'm going to have to think about whether I'll try again this year.

One thing I'm strongly considering doing is having my own personal subgoal of reading a few challenging books for the year. Maybe something like 10.
this is pretty much why I stopped doing this in the middle

didn't quite hit the book thing either since I didn't read much for a while but in general I read a lot and watch very few movies and couldn't be bothered to sit down and watch dozens of movies just for this

i'm kinda considering doing this again this year but having a personal rule where I count tv shows(at a heavily degraded rate of course,maybe like 1 season=1 movie) maybe then i'd actually feel motivated to fill out both sides of it since it would come a lot more naturally to me

That's exactly how I'm going to tackle it. I'd much rather count 8 hours of Broadchurch as a movie than count 8 hours of Police Academy as 8 entries, like I did two years ago.

Family situation and viewing preference makes it really difficult to lock down 50 movies, and I rarely find even half that many that catch my eye.

Yea, even though I watch a lot of movies I'll pack every season of a TV-series down as one entry on movies watched. It'll be marked as such but it's still a matter of picking one over the other. TV is so much better now in general.

I've watched over 150 movies this year (37 in july being the highest month) but 50 books sounds like a lot. Wouldn't even know what to read.

I'll think about it...
Come visit the monthly reading threads, and you're sure to get some good suggestions. You can also just looking at books people are reading in this thread, or look at previous years' 50-50 threads for ideas.

Getting 50 books is more about consistency than anything else; as long as you are averaging, like, 30 - 40 pages a day you'll do it easily.

I guess I'll try this here for the first time. I did well on my own this year, about 40 books and 100 movies. But it was more like 9 months than a year, exam periods are killing all my activities other than studying...
