resolutions + recommendations


well, it's maybe a bit late already, but I've made a few resolutions for 2010, too:

1 try harder at eating my five a day
2 read more books
3 catch up on good movies
4 sew more
5 look at all the nice books I already own
6 keep up with my 5 year diary
7 travel and generally get out of the city more

we started out on #7 this weekend by going to boston. it was great, i'll show you some pictures soon.

also, regarding #2 and 3, I made lists on the side bar where I'll be putting
all the books/films I have so far read/ watched this year, just as a way of keeping track.

what are your favorite books and movies?
I'd love to hear your recommendations.


  1. Schöne Vorsätze!! Und ich hätte auch gleich eine Idee zu #7: wie wäre es, wenn wir uns auf halber Strecke (na gut, für Euch dürfte es ein wenig mehr sein etwa 3/5 der Strecke für Euch 2/3 für uns) treffen würden. Vom 22.2. - 1.3. auf den Azoren... Habt Ihr Lust, Zeit?? Ach und zu #3: "Mein blühendes Geheimnis", nicht meins, sondern das von Almodóvar... Liebe Grüße!!

  2. Hello Christine. I've been visiting your blog for a few months and enjoying your photos - finding many of them wonderful!
    I always get muddled trying to decide on a favourite - there are different reasons for each choice - and I started out with a list here that kept getting longer and longer. So I deleted it and am going with just the first one that springs to mind right now ... book: Anne Michaels 'Poems' (a bit of a cheat, I know, as it contains her three volumes of poetry), and movie: 'Stranger than Fiction'.
    Good luck with your resolutions!

  3. Things fall Apart - Chinua Achebe
    Up Above the World - Paul Bowles
    A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius - Dave Eggers
    No Longer Human - Osamu Dazai
    One Humdred Years of Solitude - Gabriel Garcia Marquez
    xx Michelle

  4. Well Christine, this is a very good idea !
    I'm reading the biography of Le Corbusier right now, by Nicholas Fox Weber, pretty long and dense but so so full of fantastic little stories...
