The Quest for 52 Books: May

The quest hit rock bottom in May. Thanks, Netflix.

2017 and the Quest for 52 Books

May: 1 book completed

  • Matthew Ridley’s The Rational Optimist

May and the Side Quest of Netflix

  • Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt — Season 3
  • Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King
  • Black Mirror — Seasons 1-3
  • Master of None — Season 2
  • 13th
  • Norm Macdonald: Hitler’s Dog, Gossip, and Trickery
  • Lucas Brothers: On Drugs
  • Maria Bamford: Old Baby
  • Cedric the Entertainer: Live from the Ville
  • Chewing Gum — Seasons 1-2
  • Tangerine
  • Queen of Katwe

Eh, whatever. Worth it. Besides, I get just as much out of watching this stuff as I do reading books; that is, when I’m being a mindful consumer. There’s no promise of that regardless of the medium.

As superfluous defense of what looks pretty damn untenable (the um…Netflix binge listed above), let’s remember that Socrates was critical of writing. That point works in my favor, right? Because I still have a bunch of shit in my queue…
