best movies & books of the year

My favorite non-scripture books (of the 43 read or listened to) of the year were Jonathan Lethem’s Motherless Brooklyn (loved it), Ian McEwan’s Atonement, and Willa Cather’s My Antonia.

I enjoyed lots of movies this year.  I really recommend – of the 91 watched – two Brazilian movies, one called Behind the Sun (available on Netflix) and another called A Dog’s Will (O Auto da Compadecida).  The latter is not available on Netflix but is watch-able on Youtube with English subtitles (see here).  I loved two children’s movies, How to train your dragon and Toy Story 3 (cried!).  I loved two classic comedies, Tootsie and Groundhog Day.  And I really, really enjoyed Crazy Heart.
