Films & Books 2019

In 2019, I watched a total of eight films in the cinema and read a total of 37 books. The author I read most was Patricia Highsmith, as I had tried to complete buying all her books on Book Depository. This year I read many classics and plays, and I particularly enjoyed my Shakespeares and my Millers. I read some poetry and essays, and I didn’t read as much non-fiction this year. Here’s onwards to 2020!
