In This Year

Obviously, not everything that I encounter can claim a blog post of its own. However, that does not mean that they should go unremembered. This page aims to prevent exactly that from happening, by standing as a record of that which has not otherwise been recorded. Each year will be split into a number of lists (books, films, etc.) and only things that I have encountered for the first time in said year will be included.
