“Before the Season 4 premiere, we compiled an extensive list of books featured in, based on, or that inspired Mad Men. Now, we’ve updated it with entries from last season, along with a few more new books related to the show.”

I am in serious need of outlets for my Mad Men jones, this’ll do. For today.

“Are some reading materials better suited to one platform than another? Does Philip Larkin feel at home on an iPad, and Lorrie Moore on a Kindle? Can I make a Kay Ryan poem my ringtone? Will any gizmo make “The Fountainhead” palatable?”

I really like watching people completely misunderstand ereading.
