About

We’re a family of 4: one dad, one mom, and 2 girls aged 12 and 10 doing the fiftyfifty.me challenge. We’ve each got one year to read 50 books and watch 50 films. This blog will document our progress, provide short book and film reviews and open up a dialog with all you book and film lovers out there. You can also find us on Youtube, Pinterest, Spotify, Grooveshark and Rdio.
