We often think about the holidays as a time when we are surrounded by food and all we want to do it consume it. But I function in a world where consume means to read, watch, download, or otherwise pay attention to something. This time of year is filled with best of lists so we can all catch up on the best movies, books, tv shows that came out throughout the year. It is also the time when the award contender movies are released, so even if I haven’t been to the movies in a while, I have plenty of things to see now. Books have gotten easier with my new Kindle, which I bought to help with all my travel. And Netflix has dropped a few new shows that are getting good reviews too. This is one more element of our consumer society.
