Last week I updated my reading list.  (I’ve read 15 books so far, so I’m definitely on target for reading 24 books this year.  In fact, I think I’ll easily surpass that, and I think I’ll surpass my goal of watching 24 movies this year, too!)

In January I had a list of movies I wanted to watch.  The goal was to watch 24 movies in 2013.  Four months into the new year, I’ve now watched 16 movies.

By the way, if you’ve watched any good movies lately, let me know in the comments.  I’m always looking for more suggestions.

Of course, I realize some of these movies are fairly old, but we have had very little time to watch movies since our last two children were born, so there are some old ones that we would still like to see.

I’ll be sharing reviews of the movies we have watched every other Friday.  (Reviews for books I have read will be on the other Fridays.)

Are there any great movies you have watched recently that you can recommend?  If so, I will add them to the list.  Thanks!
