My 2017 Read/Watched List

As many of you know, every year Steven Soderbergh posts a list of the things he’s watched and read. Last year, I thought it would be fun to do the same and decided to do it again for 2017.

This past year, I saw 76 films, watched multiple episodes of 28 TV shows, read 91 books, and listened to 1 podcast.

Here’s the key:

BOLD CAPS = MOVIE (at home or in theater)

CAPS = TV SHOWS (includes Netflix)

Lowercase Italicized = Books

Quotation Marks = “Podcast”
