Starting in Episode 3: The Cecil Hotel, I began recommending books that resonated with me in some way or that have been particularly memorable. But why stop there? In this section you'll find books, movies, plays, podcasts - anything else that I've found to be enjoyable, thought provoking, entertaining, poignant, interesting, or all around good fun.

 Read more books, then share them.
