  1. I recently discovered this podcast. Gentlemen, you have taken a lifelong reader and totally changed the way I read and think about books. Bravo! I can’t wait to dive into this list.

  3. Just catching up on old episodes (so I’m probably one of the few who is not bothered by delays in releasing new episodes!) and I wanted to point out that An American Tragedy is a wonderful book and it was based on a true story. They also made a movie out of it, “A Place in the Sun” with Elizabeth Taylor, Montgomery Clift and Shelley Winters (as the loud-mouthed, lower-class girlfriend — as I’m sure you would have guessed!).
