We all have pop culture blind spots. It might be that genre you barely read, or that movie you have been meaning to get to. I have been thinking about the books I read and what my own pop culture blind spots are.  I am going to make an effort each year to help fill some of those blind spots and hopefully make my reading choices more varied and diverse than what I currently consume in the process.

With this goal in mind I decided to launch my #2020PopCultureResolution. I am going to pledge to read 12 nonfiction books throughout 2020, and watch 12 classic movies that I have not yet seen. I also want to encourage anyone who wants to take to part to join me in your own way. You can pledge to read/watch/listen to/etc whatever you want to help fill some of your own pop culture blind spots. I am excited to see what everyone has on their own lists. Please feel free to tag me in your posts, or use the hashtag so that I can see them!

My twelve nonfiction books are:

My schedule looks like this (and if anyone wants to read any of these as well, I am happy to chat about them). Each of them links to their Goodreads pages for more details.

December - TBD - hoping to fill this spot with a 2020 release I am not aware of yet

Here are the movies I am going to watch for this event:

The schedule for this will be as follows (and again, if anyone else wants to watch and chat just let me know).

January - A Place In The Sun
February - A Streetcar Named Desire
March - An Affair To Remember
April - Sabrina
May - Niagara
June - Rear Window
July - Penny Serenade
August - Humoresque
September - It Happened One Night
October - Gaslight
November - Pillow Talk
December - It's  A Wonderful Life

What are your own pop culture blind spots? Have you read any of the books, or seen any of the movies that I am going to tackle this year? Let know in the comments.

I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
